If you're on Facebook and previously refused to set up an @facebook.com email address, it was to no avail. The social network just rolled out email addresses for every single user. Fortunately, it's not connected to your external email in any way. However, according to PC Mag, some users have reported that the address is available to the public by default.

Facebook hopes the new system will protect user privacy by replacing external email addresses and replacing them with the @facebook address. Ultimately, it's just an extension of Facebook messages, but it's establishing a basis for something that could extend outside of the social network. Do you think Facebook could make it as an email provider, or should they stick to social networking? And if you can't get enough of Facebook questions, go ahead and take our 6-question Facebook Quick Poll. You know you want to.

    Facebook is leading the public down a path that will insure Facebook controls everything that happens on the internet, and by that time, it will be too late for a change. I think Facebook is intrinsically evil and self serving. Yet people keep following this crazy fad despite the multiple cases of revealed passwords, hacked accounts and "targeted ads". No Big Brother watching you, is there?
