facebook removes gmail

It looks like Facebook is taking some pretty aggressive measures against Google. TechCrunch just reported that Facebook has removed Gmail from the “Find Friends” list of email providers and also from the Facebook owned FriendFeed.

So what has Facebook removed Gmail?

There seems to be a fight brewing among the two tech giants around the issue of data portability. The exactly details I’m not sure about, but I do know that Facebook and Gmail have been going back and forth on how the other can import user data.

Facebook removing Gmail from their main site and from FriendFeed seems to be a pretty aggressive move by Facebook.

Is Facebook actually taunting Google for some reason? ┬áMaking a statement that “Facebook doesn’t really need Gmail to exists?”
