Facebook messages gets an overhaul

The message system in Facebook is set to get a major overhaul. The new system aims to integrate all of your emails and instant messages with your Facebook friends into a single “inbox,” which Lifehacker has dubbed “one inbox to rule them all.” Instead of being sorted by subject, the new inbox will be sorted by person – what Facebook is calling the “social inbox” – the idea being to make your conversations with someone easier to find.

But Facebook are also stressing that their new message system isn’t just email – though you can still set it up to receive messages from contacts outside of Facebook – but a new way of envisaging and organising your written communications with your friends. It will be interesting to see what kind of take up this new message system has.

You can have a look at a few of the new features of Facebook’s new messaging system here and take a tour via video.
