Facebook to revamp messaging service

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Facebook is revamping its messaging service.

The popular social network unveiled its plans in San Francisco on Monday.

Blogs had been buzzing with speculation, a big one being that Facebook will announce an e-mail service, its answer to Google Inc.'s Gmail.

But Facebook says e-mail will be just one component of its plans. CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the company doesn't believe e-mail is going to be a modern messaging system. Facebook is holding a mysterious event Monday in San Francisco.

The event comes a day before Zuckerberg speaks at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco.
