DO YOU LIKE THE WAY FACEBOOK PUSHES CHANGES ON IT'S USERS? Facebook Email: What You Need to Know
Facebook recently started rolling email@example.com email address to users who had not previously signed up for the service. Facebook email address have been available for more than a year but, until recently, it was not obligatory to have one. Now it is.
Pushing change on users now seems to be standardmodus operandi for Facebook: announce a feature, allow users to opt in for a while, and then force the feature on all remaining users many months later. It's precisely what happened with Facebook Timeline.
The problem, as most of us know, is if you haven't opted into the new feature, service, or change, it blindsides you when it arrives. You haven't had time to read up on what it means or how it will change your Facebook account. You don't know what's private and what's exposed.
If you unexpectedly have a new Facebook email address, here's what you need to know about what it is and how to change it.
What is Facebook Email?
Facebook email is essentially Facebook Messages. You can find it via the speech bubble icon at the upper left corner of your Facebook screen, between friend requests and notifications. (See slide 1 in the slideshow.)
