Facebook Changed the Default Email on Your Profile to Their @facebook.com Address; How to Change it Back

Facebook

Today Facebook rolled out even more changes, and this one you may not even notice unless you were looking for, that sneaky Zuckerberg.

Facebook took your default email, the one people would normally use to reach you, and changed it to their @facebook email address that I bet you didn’t even know you had, or if you did, probably never used it (seen to the left). Well apparently Facebook wants you to use it so bad that they forced the issue by automatically making it your new default email. Want to change it back? After the jump I’ll tell you how.

To change it, go to your Facebook timeline/profile click “about” and scroll down to “Contact Info” and hit edit (first red arrow below). Switch all of the crossed out circle symbols to a full circle for each inbox you want visible on your profile/timeline (second red arrow). If you don’t want @facebook.com to show up, switch it from a full circle¬† to crossed out. Boom, problem solved.
