According to DailyMail UK, facebook has started changing the emails of all its users to a generic @facebook.com without any users consent. This is not the first time that facebook tried something that users didn’t want or were aware of. You’re basically handing out heaps of personal information from details, locations and more to facebook without even knowing it.
Facebook claimed the change is to protect users’ privacy and security by not displaying a personal email address but the site’s more generic one.
A spokesman said: ‘As we announced back in April, we’ve been updating addresses on Facebook to make them consistent across our site.
‘In addition to everyone receiving an address, we’re also rolling out a new setting that gives people the choice to decide which addresses they want to show on their timelines.’
It is not the first time Facebook has pulled a ‘Big Brother’ move on social network users.
Anyone who uses Facebook is already turning over reams of sensitive personal information to large companies every day.
However I’m yet to see this change on my settings and it might be changed soon. What do you think?
