    Facebook just changed your e-mail address 3

    I didn't know where to post this so decided to put it here and let the mods decide. This is something new to me and when I checked my fb profile, yup, my email address is now a facebook email address.

    Facebook just changed your e-mail address

    Mine email hasn't changed on any of my FB pages (also have business pages). Did they change all already or is this something still to come?

    Mine changed. If I go to my profile, click on ABOUT, it shows my email addy as a facebook one.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to retrieve my facebook emails.

    Just checked. Mine is still listing my original email address plus a facebook address.
    I tried to edit it out or delete it, but no luck. But I could lock the facebook address from being seen. fyi

    Mine has also listed a fb address for about 6 months. It just goes to your messages.

    It should be whatever your page name is.

    Seems you can't delete it. When I try it, it says "There was an error removing this email." But you can change it back to the normal email address as primary address.

    You have two options for any email addresses associated with your Facebook profile: "shown on Timeline" or "hidden from Timeline." By default, Facebook is setting your @facebook.com address to be "shown on Timeline" and hiding the rest. To change that, switch your @facebook.com email address to be "hidden from Timeline," and set a different email to be "shown on Timeline."

    My email for my name was changed to @facebook.com but on the page I have for Pennsylvania Missing it is still the email to the site.

    Now that I've gotten used to it, I actually like Timeline, especially for the PA Missing page. It's easier to go back and find previous posts and I just like the look of it. Bit of a surprise since I went kicking & screaming into Timeline.
