Facebook may launch email service today

TechCrunch, a leading Silicon Valley technology blog, has reported that the social network plans to announce a Web-based email service complete with @facebook.com addresses at an event in San Francisco tomorrow.

Yahoo, Google and Microsoft are already scrambling to retool their e-mail services to build them more around people’s social connections.

Facebook would have a tremendous advantage because it owns a vast trove of data about people’s relationships and would find it easier to graft e-mail onto its existing social services such as photo-sharing.
