Earlier today, I was offered the chance on Facebook to upgrade to their new Messaging platform. I’m excited to see how this works so I went ahead and upgraded. I’ve heard that this is a slow roll-out so I also took screenshots so blog readers who didn’t have this feature (yet) could see it:
Step 0: Activate
It looks like Facebook is offering me a chance to upgrade to their messaging platform.
Here’s the screens of what I went through if folks are interested:
Step 1: Choosing an email alias
Step 2: Enabling text messaging
(I’ll be turning this off if Facebook doesn’t have a good relevance system for limiting who can send me a Facebook message as a text.)
If you’re also using Facebook’s new messaging, please leave a comment with any tips and/or let me know what you think. Thanks very much–
