The Facebook Titan Project

If you haven’t created your vanity name in Facebook, it may be time to do so. The word on the Titan project is that it’s a fully-featured e-mail program that supports POP3, IMAP and SMTP, a great feature that should work with your Outlook. Your e-mail address would be your Facebook vanity name, like

I use Outlook to access most of my e-mail accounts from my own domains and that of GMail (I hardly use Yahoo anymore because of the inaccessibility to POP3/SMTP). So, I’d rather choose the e-mail program that provides web access and POP3.

If you haven’t created your Facebook vanity name, log into Facebook and go to and follow the instructiosn to set up your vanity name, including that of the Facebook Pages that you’ve created. Note that with Pages, you can only create a vanity name when your Page has 25 or more followers.

What’s the effect? It may be good, it may be bad. Everyone speculating on the two but one thing’s evident – the world’s most popular social networking site is encroaching into web-based e-mail providers. What with Google Wave’s announcement of its death, it’s just about time Facebook enters the realm of e-mail services for its half-a-billion members.
