You may share this Facebook email ID with your friends and your friends can simply send you a message from their Gmail, Yahoomail, Hotmail or any other email services. This may be helpful for friends who do not have Facebook access in their office but need to send you a message, or you can even have a chat with them. Not only friends, but everyone who knows your Facebook Email ID can send you a message.

2. Reply to Emails right from Facebook:

Emails sent by people will be delivered to your “Facebook Messages“, and your replies will be delivered to the respective Email Ids.

Tips

1. Share This Email ID to Limited Friends:

Although its nice to have a Facebook Email ID, its still nicer if you don’t share it with too many people or make it public. This may attract spam.

2. Tweak Privacy settings to receive mails from only friends:

If you have already made your FB email ID public, just head on to your privacy settings, Choose “Who can Look me up” and change “Everyone” to “Friends” or “Friends of Friends” as you wish.
