Email is great for sharing stories and photos and links and newsletters; Facebook can be good for sharing, too, and for receiving things worth sending.

In IncrediMail, you can get both: your emails and your Facebook account in one application, making it easy to follow your Facebook updates alongside your mail and easy to share links and photos from emails with Facebook friends.
