I hope email won't be out, I dont prefer to contact friends thru FB personal message, FB super slow due to too many people / too many members using it. I prefer use my gmail accounts, I can save an unfinised email, I can attach photos, links to my fotki photo sites, can't do that with FB; I use FB mainly for photo-sharing, really don't prefer to chat with friends there, both FB and my gmail acct linked to my blackberry, but sometimes it happens lilke I received FB personal message, but doesn't show up on BB, so I didn't know I got PM from FB:( but gmail usually works well with my blackberry; I receive and reply instantly, very efficient, I prefer email better than facebook.

FB is only one alternative to email - and really its email through the FB server.  I think the thought was more on texting or chat - but as you say, there are so many things you can only do by email ....

Who wants to see the other person?  I'm not sure it really adds anything unless there is something specific to show.

well if you have family on the other side of the word and can never match up time at least they can see you with a message and visa versa as well then they hopefully wont interpret words on a page incorrectly. I think there are more benefits  than not.

good point - but we are communicating well here accross the world without email - a forum is more 'family' like since messages are sent to all in a select group...

I would rather not use the video camera.  This way I can just relax and not worry about how I look.  Geez, I can imagine people getting fixed up to be in front of a computer.

another reason I hope email not out; FB pm box does not allow to attach multiple photos to the same pm. Some of my friends are much more accessible on FB than email, so if email them, takes a whole week to reply, if FB them, would be getting much quicker response;) lol...

I'm accessible by both FB (wall posting or pm only) or email, lol...both my BB & iphone gives instant notice for new messages. but don't expect me to chat with you thru instant message thru FB, I'm so busy, often doing multiple things on computer, sometimes I opened a window on FB, then minimize to do other things such as email or paying bills or editing photos, watching vids, by the time I noticed someone trying to talk to me, that person already off line. So if you see I"m on FB, does not mean I'm really on, my FB screen could just be minimized and I"m busy doing other things...LOL?>>not that I intentionally ignore anybody...

Which is why I think email is here to stay.  You get to read it when you want to (there is a limit to immediacy - turns out we have a life as well as communication) and its very flexible.  Really its just a modern 'letter'.

I was going to say that snail mail is on the way out. and that e-mail will come even further up the chain as a form of correspondence.

I even forget to  check my letter box..it is almost becoming a novelty to get a real letter
