Facebook has announced the new feature of messages with an email address to all the users. The new Social inbox will have messages and updates from our friends and everyone at unified place. If you want an invite to this new Facebook Messages/ Email, then you can request it here. If you have already got the invite you can claim your Facebook email address.

When you send messages to external email addresses, the emails will be formatted to look like Facebook messages, including your name, your profile picture and your message.
