Facebook shutting down email service

The company announced yesterday that it will pull plug on the service.

The emails showed up as messages for Facebook users, but the service never really took off.

Facebook says it now plans to focus more on mobile messaging.

Last week, the company acquired Whatsapp, a mobile messaging service.

If you used Facebook email, your messages will be forwarded to your account's primary email address.
