Facebook Releases New Messaging To Everyone

On Friday, Facebook announced that all users will soon be able to migrate to the new messaging platform.

Facebook was probably getting a ton of requests from people who want the upgrade – which unlike the profile upgrade, might make sense. However, the expectation was that the rollout would happen gradually, but now it seems that the roll out will happen much faster and very soon.

The benefit to the new messaging system is essentially that it acts as extended instant messaging system with SMS. There is also the ability to have history from all the messages, even chat messages.
