Facebook to Launch New E-mail service?!

I'm sorry but as if Facebook has not come out with enough new features, it has been reported that Facebook has just acquired the domain for an e-mail service. On first glance I am not a fan of the idea, what are your thoughts?

It has been revealed that Facebook has acquired the domain. This news comes just days before its special event, where it is set to reveal an overhauled version of Messages that works like e-mail.

A recent report from All Facebook claims that Facebook is using internally, but doesn’t quite know what Facebook intends to do with it. At the same time, The New York Times and TechCrunch claim that the company’s impending Messages overhaul will utilize the domain for user e-mail accounts.

What does that mean for Most likely, will become the e-mail domain of the company’s 1,400+ employees. Yahoo does something similar; its staff uses e-mail addresses instead in order to avoid confusion between its employees and the hundreds of millions of users of its e-mail service.
