Want your Facebook email account now? Facebook has set up the following page which enables users to upgrade their messaging system immediately.

While Facebook said that users would have to wait to be invited, there is apparently a single page that you can access that will enable you to switch to the new messaging system. So much for waiting! All you need to do is visit http://www.facebook.com/about/messages/ and click on the “Go To Messages” button as pictured in the image below. That’s all you need to do!

Update
Sorry for the incorrect information. It appears some people are getting a “Request Invite” button. We are working on finding out how we can get an invite to some of you :)

Update 2
We’ve posted an invite for sale for those who don’t want to wait. You can bid on it via eBay. 100% of the proceeds will be donated.
