More developments for Facebook. The world’s largest social network has more than a billion monthly users, however, not many of them bothered to use Facebook email. After pushing it for several year, the company has decided to retire  @facebook.com.

“We’re making this change because most people haven’t been using their Facebook e-mail address, and we can focus on improving our mobile messaging experience for everyone,” Facebook said in a statement that appeared on CNN today.

Facebook users are being notified. If you have a Facebook account, those company emails will now be forwarded to the primary email address on the account. More on this change and how Facebook users will be able to deal with it here.
