Facebook has admitted that ‘most people’ have not been using its email brand which it launched in 2010, and has therefore decided to scrap the option to rather focus on improving its mobile messaging.

The social media giant has begun to notify its users that emails sent to an @facebook.com account will be forwarded on to the address that Facebook has on file for the user.

“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 have the option to turn forwarding off),” the company said.
