Incase you missed it, Facebook decided that they should change your preferred email address to their own instead without your permission.
Months ago Facebook had announced that they would automatically generate an email address for you based on your username. If you never had a customized Facebook url eg. www.facebook.com/tinasheonline, then the site has automatically generated a numeric email address.
The thing that’s pissing most people off is what they somehow forgot to mention was that this new email will automatically replace the one you chose to display on your account’s “Contact Info” section under the “About” tab.
Your brand new surprise Facebook e-mail address shows up there and on your Timeline even if you’ve previously chose to hide any e-mail addresses you’ve provided. E-mails sent to the address show up in the message inbox on the site.
Thanks to pressure from the public, Facebook announced an thanks but no thanks alternative.
If you’d like to change your contact info back to what it was, users can change their e-mail back by clicking “Edit” in the Contact Info box, then hiding the new address.
We sure hope that Facebook gets it now that users generally aren’t into surprises when it comes to their personal information.
