On the heels of today’s announcement, Facebook is now allowing its users to request an invitation to the new messaging system that will be rolled out in the next couple of months. The new messaging system intends to bring text messages, chat, and email in one simple conversation. The new feature will also allow Facebook users to activate the optional @Facebook.com email address as well as more control who can email you.
What are you waiting for? Head on over to http://www.facebook.com/about/messages/ and click Request Invite.
