Facebook forces all users over to @facebook.com e-mail addresses
from arstechnica.com ................ @facebook.com addresses are free; hence, we must all want one.
jaunt as an e-mail service in November 2010, when it started allowing users to make @facebook.com addresses and receive conventional e-mails addressed there in their messages inboxes. The service was intially hailed as a Gmail replacement, but caught on about as well as Facebook Gifts and Facebook Places (both of which are dead, in case you were wondering). Gervase Markham noted in a blog post on Friday that his display e-mail address, formerly a personal one, had been changed to an @facebook.com address without any action on his part.
f you find your display e-mail has been hijacked by a facebook.com domain, fret not; a quick edit of the settings will let you restore a personal e-mail address (edit Contact Info, then select the facebook.com email to be "hidden from timeline." Select another to be "shown on timeline," if you desire). Security researcher Ashkan Soltani points out a choice phrase from Facebook's post announcing the addresses in November 2010: "We are also providing an @facebook.com email address to every person on Facebook who wants one." And everyone else, apparently. Facebook has provided the following statement on the change:
Facebook Changed Everyone's Email to @Facebook.com; Here's How to Fix It
"There is also a river called Helikon [in Pieria]. (...) But, they go on to say, the women who killed Orpheus wished to wash off in it the blood-stains, and thereat the River sank underground, so as not to lend its waters to cleanse manslaughter."
