Facebook cuts its vestigial e-mail addresses
Facebook has retired its @facebook.com e-mail addresses as of Monday, according to Recode. The reason for killing the feature is, unsurprisingly, very few people were using it.
Facebook introduced the e-mail addresses in November 2010 as a way to deliver messages to users’ inboxes without needing to use Facebook to originate the message. At the time, Facebook beneficently declared it was “providing an @facebook.com e-mail address to every person on Facebook who wants one.”
