February 25, 2014: Facebook Email Gets Discontinued

2014 – After several attempts to get people onto their own @facebook.com email system, Facebook throws in the proverbial towel. They issue a statement announcing their email service will be discontinued by March.

The email service was implemented in November 15, 2010. It was part of their messaging campaign and a rival to Gmail, Yahoo mail and Outlook. Alas, they were not able to ween enough of those off the other free services. Add to it a lack of updates and Facebook trying to hide other email addresses which brought enough complaints already.
