Facebook just removed everyone’s email address from their profile and replaced it with an @facebook.com email address without asking you. Here’s how to easily fix the problem.
Long ago, Facebook launched its own email service, which was promptly forgotten by everyone. Recently, they removed everyone’s email addresses from their profile, replacing them with a @facebook.com email address instead (not Facebook’s internal email address which they use for notifications and password resets, just the one listed on your profile). Luckily, your old addresses are very easy to get back on your profile:
1. Click “About” on your profile and scroll down to your email address. Click “Edit” to change them.
2. Click on the circle next to your Facebook email address and change its setting to “Hidden From Timeline”.
3. Click on the circle next to your other email addresses and change their settings to “Shown On Timeline”.
4. Click the Save button at the bottom of the Edit popup (Don’t forget this step).
That’s all it takes. It’s a really quick fix, but it was a big jerk move for Facebook to do this without asking permission, or even telling you that it happened.
