Facebook Changes User Emails

Facebook clearly wanted more negative publicity this year. On Monday the company changed everyone’s default email address to the @facebook.com account that all users were assigned recently—but few had started using. When users check their contact information on their profiles or timelines today, they will find only the @facebook.com email account listed and any other email addresses hidden. In a statement of explanation, Facebook said, “Ever since the launch of timeline, people have had the ability to control what posts they want to show or hide on their own timelines, and today we’re extending that to other information they post, starting with the Facebook address.”
