Facebook shutters its unpopular email service

After three years, Facebook is killing its email service. When it launched in late 2010, Zuckerberg and Co. touted the system's basic approach to messaging (think: no attachment or CC/BCC features). However, in a statement given to The Verge, the outfit confirmed that barely anyone was using the service. If you did use it, though, don't fret: any incoming mail will now be forwarded to your primary email address.
