Facebook is discontinuing their Facebook.com email addresses.
Launched in 2012, the service didn’t gain traction amidst controversy over the service.
A Facebook spokesperson explained to Inside Facebook “Over the next few weeks we’re notifying people who use their @facebook.com email that the feature is changing. When someone sends you an email to your @facebook.com address, it will no longer go to your Messages on Facebook. Instead, the email will be forwarded to the primary email address on your account. (People will have the option to turn forwarding off.)
We’re making this change because most people haven’t been using their Facebook email address, and we can focus on improving our mobile messaging experience for everyone.”
