Today’s “rumor” has to do with the upcoming Facebook announcement on Monday, November 15. Some are guessing the invite-only event will have to do with the launch of a new Facebook’s e-mail offering (known as Project Titan). Titan, according to the buzz, isn’t a mere revamp of the current Facebook direct messaging capability; it will be a new full-featured Web mail product like Gmail, Hotmail, etc.
I have a source close to Microsoft who said the Facebook November 15 event will, indeed, be focused on Facebook’s new e-mail product. So what makes the event potentially interesting for Microsoft, its customers and partners? Supposedly, according to my source, the new Facebook e-mail will include Office Web Apps integration.
