    Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg on Monday took the wraps off Facebook's latest innovation, a 'seamless messaging' system..

    The social-networking site's new version of messaging is built to work with Facebook IM and other IM and SMS systems.

    "It's not email. It handles email in addition to Facebook messages, and Facebook IM, and other IM and SMS and all the other different ways that you want to communicate," Zuckerberg said, as reported by ZDNet UK's sister site CNET News. "It's true, people are going to be able to have Facebook.com email addresses, but it's not email."
