Facebook Messaging: SMS + IM + Email + FB

Facebook unveiled its new messaging platform aimed at unifying SMS, instant messaging, email and Facebook updates. The new service, which will be rolled out to the company's 500 million subscribers, will let users send messages from within Facebook to any of the outbound channels. Incoming messages from any channels can also be seen from within Facebook and users will have the option of sharing with friends or keeping messages sorted by conversation with the single person sending you the messages.
