If you get your friends’ Facebook comments and replies delivered via email, you can soon save yourself some time and hassle by replying via email. With a good filter and label set up, it gets even easier.
That in itself is a pretty nice little timesaver. But maybe you’re still getting seemingly endless email pings from Facebook, yet you’re not quite keen on the once-or-twice-a-day, all-in-one aggregation of NutshellMail.
Our humble suggestion: With the ability to reply by email, setting up a “Facebook” filter and label in Gmail (or another filter-friendly mail client) is a very smart idea. Create a filter for messages coming from facebookmail.com — the root address of status updates, fan page updates and direct messages — with “Skip the inbox” selected, and a label (or folder, in some cases) of Facebook applied. Keep it visible in your list of labels, and you can access and quickly reply to your Facebook pings whenever you get around to them.
