According to reports at TechCrunch and ZDNet, Facebook will be releasing an email service to compete with Gmail, Hotmail and all the other web based email services. The team at Facebook is calling this the “Gmail Killer.” Rumors have it, people will have an @Facebook email address.

Yahoo News writer, Jeff Van Camp, writes how “Facebook is used to operating in a closed environment.” Now, the company “will have to allow people outside Facebook to contact people inside Facebook.”

Will you want another email address, another log in, another password to remember? Will my username change, what will my login email be? These are all questions that will be answered very soon, and with over 500 million users, I’m sure it will catch on.
