How To set up Facebook email address ( )

Facebook has finally launched the “Facebook email address”. Owning your address makes it easier for friends and family who are not on Facebook yet to connect with you, while also seeing everything you’ve ever discussed with each facebook friend as a single conversation.

I have set up mine: ( , you too can. It’s free and easy to set up.

To set up a free address, go to your Messages view and click the “Claim your Facebook email” link.

Your email address will match your public username, for example:


If you don’t have a username yet, you can choose one when you create your email address.

Once you set up your email address, people can email you using any traditional email system (e.g., Hotmail, Yahoo or Gmail), and the emails will be delivered to your Facebook Messages. 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.

Once again, to set up yours, go to : and click the “Claim your Facebook email” link.

That’s all.

I hope this info helps….

UPDATE: As at the time of publishing this, it has been observed that the Facebook Email address is not yet available to all facebook users, hence you might not see the upgrade link when you click as explained above. Facebook is still rolling out the new Messages to everyone gradually, so you should see steps to upgrade soon. If you want to access the new Messages sooner, visit the Learn more page to request an invitation (invitations will be sent pending availability).
