Scenario: You receive a notification in your email that says “you receive a message from X on Facebook” and that includes the actual message content. To reply, you have to go through a hassle of logging into Facebook.
SOLUTION: Learn from Elance! Their “workrooms” allows you to reply to the email notification you received and the message goes right back to Elance and gets posted on the conversation. Facebook should do the same! Of course, from their point of view, if you don’t visit the site, you don’t see the ads and they don’t make money. So, any ideas for a workaround?
