Facebook has announced that it’s in the final stages of rolling out to all users Facebook Messages, the company’s revamped and redesigned communication system.
“We’ve begun expanding the rollout of Messages to everyone on Facebook,” the company announced on its blog. “This will happen gradually over the next few weeks.”
First announced in November, Facebook Messages combines SMS, chat, messaging and e-mail into one communication platform. It removes longer messages and subject titles in favor of shorter, quicker bursts of communication. Users also have the option of inheriting an @facebook.com e-mail address.
The social network made it clear early on that it would take its time to roll out the new system, giving people the chance to get used to Facebook’s unique take to online communication. Facebook’s users send more than 4 billion messages per day.
