Facebook seemed to have lost some of its manners, having changed its users’ listed email addresses without asking for permission prior, to one that ends in “@facebook.com.” This change was first stumbled upon last Saturday, where users saw their @facebook.com address being listed – or just to have the rest of their email addresses hidden. First announced a couple of years ago, the @facebook.com email service did not pick up any speed at all compared to other email services, and this latest round of self-promotion without prior permission certainly ticked off certain groups of people, even though it is not that big a deal when you think about it.
For those affected and want to make a change to the status quo, just go to your profile, select “Update info,” scroll down to “Contact Info” and click “Edit.” Choose just who you want to share your individual email address(es) with, and whether you would like your email to be shown on your timeline or not. What’s your take on it – are you nonchalant about it, or are you peeved with Facebook’s latest shenanigan?
