Citing low usage, Facebook has terminated the email address system that gave all users a @facebook.com mailing account.
Those that actually used the service will soon receive an email telling them that any mail sent to their @facebook.com account will be forwarded to the primary email address listed on their account.
The service which was launched in November 2010, was an effort by the social networking company to streamline all communications by providing a single inbox that could receive Facebook messages, SMS texts, and conventional emails.
From now on, emails sent to an "@facebook.com" address will be forwarded to the personal email address from which the member signed up for the site.
The change will happen in early March.
