Facebook New Messaging Service

I recently stumbled across this page, http://www.facebook.com/about/messages/, and it’s basically introducing Facebook’s new messaging service. I really wanted to see if anybody has used this and their thoughts on the matter.

After watching a video on Facebook it seems to be a lot like Google Wave was trying to be, but with Facebook instead of Wave. In addition it’s all about seamless integration to messaging, allowing you to message across in more than one platform and message filtering based on your friends and friends of friends lists.

This will certainly make an impact of the way things work on Facebook. We have already seen Facebook grow into one of the most popular websites.

I would be interested to know what people have heard about this new service and their thoughts on their matter.
