    My default setting for e-mail address was not touched by Facebook. It remains as it was.

        They switched mine, too.

        Just plow through the cnn article to change it back. It's a pain in the butt to figure out, but it can be done (fb doesn't make it easy).

        Thanks so much for this alert. Who knew? LOL

    Well, I just sent regards to myself. Popped up in my messages in about a millisecond. I suppose I'll find some use for the thing.

    I need to see what this is all about, it sound really weird, but you know how cyber space is, things get shifted around all the time. Lets hope its not going to hurt us any, darn FB changes.

    The supposed switch was from your primary account email me@gmail.com to username@facebook.com in a valiant attempt to expand the messaging system used by Facebook for user communication. You can change the settings to hide it or both email addresses from the public and friends. In addition can set permissions for private messaging, avoiding unwanted messages, spam, and soon to be Facebook ads at the bottom/or right of each message {like gmail}.

      Folks really need to read the entire TOS and Privacy Policy of sites they join. Facebook & Twitter have people by the b@!!s, and they do not even know it.

      Join Badoo, its much more transparent. big_smile

    Not my email address. I deleted my Facebook account 3 years ago. (And again 2 years ago, as Facebook used to simply "deactivate" your account so that all the info remained there, until a threat of a class action lawsuit forced them to let people delete accounts.)

    I stick with Livejournal and Dreamwidth. Privacy respected, and I'm not getting my personal data mined and sold to commercial interests.
