After more than three years, Facebook’s email service will be shutting down.

The company announced Thursday that it will pull the plug on the little-used service.

But it never took off.

Facebook says it plans to focus more on mobile messaging.

Last week, the company acquired WhatsApp, a mobile messaging service.
