Facebook Changed Everyone’s Email to @Facebook.com

Whitson Gordon:

Facebook just removed everyone’s email address from their profile and replaced it with an @facebook.com email address without asking you. […] Facebook launched its own email service back in 2010, which was promptly forgotten by everyone. This morning, Forbes noticed that they removed everyone’s email addresses from their profiles, replacing them with an @facebook.com email address instead (not Facebook’s internal email address which they use for notifications and password resets, just the one listed on your profile).

I don’t think this is as big of a deal as everyone is making of it, but it really makes me wonder what these decision making meetings at Facebook are like. One the one hand, I get opting users in to new features to basically force adoption. On the other hand, they just keep pissing people off with stuff like this.
