Is This a Preview of The New Facebook Email?

So Facebook recently told the world about their latest and greatest feature, new Facebook email. I will be honest, I wasn’t really excited about this new feature.  My initial thought is, another email address to keep track of and set up.  My second gripe was that this meant another place for spammers to reach me and fill up another inbox.  Today, my second complaint of this new email system was already met.   See the email to the right that came into my message system.  (I don’t even have the new Facebook email yet.)

Spamming with new Facebook EmailHere’s a spammed message from someone who “found me in South Carolina” and wants to “expand their business.”  Their project doesn’t interfere with what I am currently doing & can make me rich.

Now getting a spammed message once in a while is no big deal.  I know that their are people trying to scam and do things the wrong way all the time.  My issue though is going to be more with Facebook on this one.  Since these messages are being sent from a member to a member always, how will they be filtering all the messages from their 500 million members?  Or, will be just be inundated with so many spam & junk email messages on a daily basis that we all just ignore the account & never even look at the content inside it.

Are messages like this what we all have to look forward to with the new Facebook email? What do you think of this new feature that Facebook is launching?
