What will be your reaction when you will come to know that Facebook has made visibility changes to your personal information, If you haven’t looked at your Facebook profile lately, you might want to take a minute and check it out.
It appears Facebook has decided to switch everyone’s default email address to an “@facebook” account. Problem is, they didn’t even bother telling us of the change, much less asking us for permission to do so and all this in an attempt to improve email address privacy.
So if you had left your contact email as email@example.com , Facebook has conveniently hidden it and now only shows firstname.lastname@example.org (username is your Facebook ID). Unless you reset your controls, this makes it harder for friends to contact you via third-party email.
How To Reset Settings And Show Your Personal Emails–
Go to your wall or profile and click “About”. On the “About” page there is a section listed with “Contact Information”. See the picture below for an example. Click the “Edit” button to change the default email address displayed.
Find the email address that you would like displayed, and click the dropdown arrow on the right, as displayed in the picture above. Click the selection that says “Shown on Timeline”. If you don’t want people to use your “@facebook” address, then select “Hidden from Timeline”. Then save your settings when you have made desired changes.
