It started with a bang in 2010 when Mark Zuckerberg labelled it as “next generation messaging” but three years later, Facebook is closing down its e-mail service because of the low participation of the users.

Earlier the e-mails sent to “@facebook.com” would go to the user’s message box, but seeing the little application by users who continue to depend on their primary e-mail addresses, the social networking site has decided to completely phase out the service by March 2014.

A Facebook spokesman confirmed that when someone sends an email to @facebook.com, it will be forwarded to the primary email address of the user instead of the Messages box on Facebook. The forwarding feature is switched on by default. For users to receive the forwarded messages, they must have a primary e-mail address on Facebook.
