Facebook, Don’t Change My Email Address, Bro!

Facebook be doing the most ALLATAHM. All the doggone time for NO reason. And they do what they do without notifying us. I know we agreed to the Terms of Service so our hands are tied to certain things but side-eye Zuckerberg and team! Y’all are lucky I’m addicted and can’t quit even though I’ll protest vigorously and shake my fists like a boxer. LUCKY, I SAY! Hmph.

Anywho, you’re probably wondering what they did this time. Wells, you might not have noticed but Facebook has changed the email address listed on your profile to your FB Don’t know what I’m talmbout? Look:

FB email

YUP. SEE WHAT I’M TALMBOUT??? Who told them I wanted folks to contact me at That’s my FIRST question. Dos. Who told them I even want a FB email? Surely ain’t me! I’ont gibbadamb bout that stranger bish email address. Most of the messages I get on FB are from party promoters inviting me to “Grown and Sexy” night which I am FOR SURE not going to. Or “YOLO Night” which is guaranteed to be an affair of bad decisions.

But yeah, go to your own profile and click “edit” and you’ll see that your email is probably changed too. Why’d they have to change our emails? DON’T NOBODY WANT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS, FACEBOOK. By “Nobody” I mean me. Sharrap. (-___-)

DO NOT WANT, FB! NAWL. I do not want.

According to the good people at Mashable,

“If you want to switch your email contact information back to what it was, it’s easy to do. Visit your Timeline or profile page and select “About” under your contact information. You can then hide your Facebook email address from the contact page and elect to highlight another email address.”

Ennehweighs, I changed the email address to my actual one (and only my friends can see my real one) so TAKE THAT, MARK!

Facebook’s always playing bald-headed games. Hmph.

Did you check your profile yet to see? Let a goon know.

    Luvvie, they changed mine too! And why didn’t they add it instead of changing it with no notice. Now, where do my emails go? There’s no new Inbox thru FB and no info on where I’m to go to get them. And you’re right, we are at their mercy! I’m about to Blow Up the Spot and let everybody know! Thanks for letting us know.

    Yup, I heard about this new shenanigan of theirs yesterday through twitter smh. Sure enough I went to check and only the fb email was displayed. Really fb? That’s what you’re on? Like Jennifer mentioned, why couldn’t they have just added their email addy instead of preventing your chosen email to show? It just ain’t right Zuckerberg!

    They actually highlighted this on FOX5 news this morning! I was stunned! Why would they want to CHANGE your email address?? This doesn’t make sense. If FB keeps doing things like this, they are going to find another up and coming social media that is going to take over and they are going to lose out!
