Facebook Expected To Announced New Email Service Today

Facebook will be having another live event today, which starts at 1 p.m. EST (10 a.m. PST). It is becoming widely expected that Facebook will announce a new web based email service.

Although I haven’t seen anything office, but you can probably watch the live event here > http://www.facebook.com/FacebookLive?v=app_127337483972992

A Facebook email service could take one of two forms:

1) An email service build off the “fb.com” domain

Last week, Facebook acquired the FB.com domain for an undisclosed amount from MarkMonitor. This was seen as a possible move to build an email platform upon the fb.com domain – so your email would be “email@fb.com”.

2) An email service built on the existing “facebook.com” domain

This would be a more realistic move in my opinion since Facebook.com email addresses would help build the “Facebook” brand, and it’s a name that 500 million users are already very used to.

So what do you think we can expect from Facebook’s live event today?
