(Marketing-Interactive) – After revolutionising the social media space, Facebook is widely tipped to announce its move into email for its 500 million-strong user base globally.

Overseas reports say Facebook will announce its move later today. The focus on email is being touted as a bold one to take over internet giants Google, Yahoo! or Microsoft’s Hotmail.

Also likely is a partnership with Microsoft to explore possible tie-ups to bring together the functionality of Facebook in MS Office applications. Microsoft owns a small percentage of Facebook shares.

If this takes off, Facebook would surpass the 361 million global users of Windows Live Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail’s 273 million, and Gmail’s 193 million.
