Facebook announces new messaging system that is simple, integrated everywhere, social, and keeps your history

10 years ago

Mark Zuckerburg just announced Facebook’s new Titan Modern Messaging system that is minimal, can be seamlessly integrated and uses your own social graph. Is it a google killer? Not yet at least and Zuckerburg repeated multiple times that it’s not about killing google in fact he thinks it’s a great product but the titan system is about relating messaging to a more personal approach across platforms.

The 3 main features
Seamless Messaging: A convergent system that handles your messaging across all your platforms. It’s not Email, it’s just a wait to communicate.
Conversation History:  A real stream of conversation like IMing and SMS in one view.
Social Inbox: Facebook Filtering /Spam Killer using your social graph.

15 engineers have been working over a year to roll out the Titan Messaging System. It’ll be a slow rollout within the next few months and all Facebook users will be able to get their own @facebook.comif they’d like. All internal Facebook Staff will now be using @fb.com as their addresses.

Facebook will offer 3 mailboxes that will use your current network around you to make your world better: Main Inbox, Other Inbox and Junk.
