Remember when Facebook gave you a Facebook email address and made it your default contact unless you requested otherwise? And some people said it would be a Gmail killer, like how people said Google+ would be a Facebook killer? Looks like things went about as well for Facebook email as they did for Google+, because Facebook is shutting down its email due to disuse. According to a Facebook spokesperson (via the BBC): Were making this change because most people havent been using their Facebook email address. Sometime in early March, all three emails to Facebook.com addresses will be forwarded to the email account the user put down when he signed up for the site.
