"Fmail , Facemail , GmailKiller" or whatever you call it .
Techcrunch has reported that facebook may launch its own email service later this monday in the web sumit 2.0 talk at New York .
All the 500 million plus users of the facebook are familiar with the internal messaging service of the facebook that helps send message to someone on the network . Many users are already using it as the primary messaging service to deliver their contents as its work framework is very much similar to the e-mail service provided it cant be used to communicate outside facebook.
There are hot talks going on regarding facebook will now launch its own email service that will also help the users to communicate outside their "wall" . It will be really intresting to see how it impacts the current world wide web and the top players of the email market namely Microsoft's Hotmail (374 million users) , Yahoo's mail (303 million users) and Google's Gmail(180 million users) .
There are already sharp reactions going on and lot of debates are going on that what if facebook now going to target when it will have the inbox access to the 500 million users that counts for about one third of the web.
But i have some contrary views to put here.
Is Facebook going to misuse its current authority over the web ?
The battle for the web authority that has largely been the focus of the two major web giants namely Google and facebook. Google has enjoyed the web supremacy for nearly a decade and had almost a single handed win of the web authority but looking at the today's competition that facebook has presented before it , I personally feel that google holds almost no authority at all. Considering an example of my own blog, the article on facebook tricks brings more clicks to my site compared to somthing i write on Page Rank algorithm even though the algorithm can give me a state of a super SEO.
The question now comes is that what interests people so much about facebook that it has almost won the battle of the web authority from google.
