    Potential Employer: "Okay, we're just about done here. One more thing, we're a modern company, and we contact the successful candidate via email. Can you just confirm your email address please?"
    Me: "Yeah, sure. It's hightower@facebook.com"
    Potential Employer: "Just as we thought, you won't be suitable for this position. Get out"

    Even better will be the small companies (who can't afford a domain) with their sales email account plastered across their white vans: greed-builders@facebook.com

    Or worse:
    ...
    Me: "Yeah sure it's Tyiell@facebook.com"
    Potential Employer: "Oh cool, did you want to join my farming game or lend me a tommy gun in Mafia Wars? We're a modern company after all!!"
    Me: "No - and suddenly the dole queue seems an attractive concept. Byeee!"

    I can see it now, a photography and photo album service creates it's brand:

    your@facebook.com.

    What about a custard pie manufacturer?:

    inyour@facebook.com


    An independent dating service?:

    ugly@facebook.com

    And finally, a watch repair company:

    clock@facebook.com

    There is one very good reason for not using facebook for email - corporate filtering.

    You can probably get to gmail and/or hotmail through filtering. Can you see companies dropping their facebook filtering to allow employees to get to their email?
