Facebook today announced the next generation of messaging dubbed as Facebook Social Messaging. Using the service you can communicate with your friends using IM, SMS and of course email too.
However, Facebook Social Messaging is only a invite-only affair right now and you will have to wait to get an invite before you can use it. Excited? Well, so am I, but am still waiting for that elusive invite to come by.
If you cannot wait to get your hands on an invite you can request for one at the official Facebook site. Be aware that lot of scams for the Facebook messaging invites will come by in the next few days, so be wary of what you click or share. Go ahead and request an invite for Facebook Mail/Social Messaging at http://www.facebook.com/about/messages/
