Facebook launched its email service back in November 2010 in hopes of providing one inbox where users could send and receive emails and messages.
The email feature, rarely updated, has in fact caused more trouble than it's been worth for Facebook.
In June 2012, Facebook highlighted @email addresses on profiles while hiding other email addresses.
The move was intended to return user profiles to a blank slate where email addresses were private, but the outcome was that people thought Facebook was favoring its own email services over others.
Facebook is retiring its email service and has begun notifying users that all email sent to their @address will soon be forwarded to their primary email address on file.
Facebook users can turn off the forwarding feature, which is on by default.
Users without a primary email address on Facebook won't receive forwarded messages, but it's pretty unlikely that they're missing anything."Most people have not been using their @email address," said a Facebook spokesperson, who confirmed that the update effectively retires the social network's email service.Yes, you are able to choose whether to share your posts with all of your connections, or post them privately - which will only allow yourself and your partner to access them.You can email non 23snaps users any content you upload to 23snaps via the app.First you will need to locate the post you wish to share, then you need to tap the all you need to do now is enter the email address of the chosen recipient and hit send. although we understand that many of our users use 23snaps to keep their content private, it is possible to post any content you upload on 23snaps to Facebook if you wish. If you encounter the error message "23snaps is unable to access the Facebook account on your phone.You can do this in 2 ways, the first will add the content to a 23snaps album on Facebook, the second will add a link to your Facebook Timeline which will allow your friends to load the content in a browser window. Please check your Facebook settings.", it is because you need to alter the authorisation settings of the Facebook app on your phone.
