Facebook, closing in on signing up its 600 millionth user, is already the No. 1 social networking service in the world. Now it wants to become the largest and most important real-time messenger by combining the world’s most-often-used digital media: SMS texting, e-mail, chat and regular Facebook messages.  

Facebook Messages, which the company launched in invitation-only mode Nov. 15, also enables people to communicate with their friends using any connected device they want. The bottom line is this: A person using Facebook Messages can send one message on any device, using any of the four media noted above, to anyone else using the service who, likewise, can use any media and device. It’s a blurring — and a clarification — of digital communications as we know it.
