Social network could launch a rival to Google?s Gmail today

Facebook to announce email service?

Facebook is due to reveal a number of changes to its messaging system today, including a new full-blown email service, reports suggest.

A source told Reuters that the changes would be "across the board", while TechCrunch claims a web-based email product will be launched to rival the likes of Hotmail and Google’s Gmail. Users will be able to register for an address.

Facebook has not responded to the rumours, however, it has invited reporters to a press event in San Francisco today, which it says is ahead of CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s talk at the Web 2.0 conference tomorrow.
