Facebook buys fb.com, to be used in upcoming email service?

November 12th, 2010 at 2:09 PM

It’s no secret that Facebook will be holding another media event on Monday, November 15th. It is widely thought, and has been reported, that the social networking giant will be launching its own web-based email service; purportedly code-named “Project Titan.”  This got us thinking, how will Facebook differentiate its employees, who currently use facebook.com email addresses, from its 500 million users? How about this: fb.com.

In doing a little digging we found that MarkMonitor, a company whose sole purpose is to facilitate online and enterprise brand protection, is listed as the registrar of the domain fb.com. According to the available information, records for said domain were last updated on September 8th of this year. MarkMonitor manages online assets for company’s such as Nokia, UBS, and — according to this eWeek article from 2009 — Facebook.

It’s all a little speculative, but considering: MarkMonitor is the listed registrar of the fb.com domain, they have a working relationship with Facebook, and the social networking giant is in the market for a new (preferable shorter) domain name… all the pieces are there. And we’ll find out for sure on Monday.
