Facebook draws user angry with email switch
Click 'Messages' on Facebook and then "Other" in the right sidebar and you might find emails missing from your Gmail or other personal and work accounts. Without giving you any warning or notification, Facebook last week changed your profile to hide any email addresses you've previously listed and instead show only your little-known "@facebook.com" address. Any messages sent to you or your @facebook.com address that wasn't sent from friends, friends of friends, or email addresses registered to their Facebook accounts ends up there, easily missed. Now Facebook's unauthorized change to your preferred contact info is auto-syncing with address books for some mobile devices, so people don't even realize they're not pinging your Gmail, they're sending messages to your Other black hole. But rather than apologize, Facebook has implied to ReadWriteWeb that users are merely confused. Yes, users are confused...because Facebook changed their contact info without consent!
