Facebook changed your default email address without telling you

So Facebook decided which of my email addresses it was going to show on my timeline?

Facebook now shows everyone’s email address to be yourname@facebook.com – not the email address that you chose to display on your profile.

I’d prefer to choose my own email address thank you Facebook.  It is a simple matter to get it back however so that Facebook displays the email address you want – not the email address Facebook wants you to display.

1: Click on your username and click on the about link..


2: Scroll down the the Contact info area and click on the edit button.  You will see a list of your email addresses.


3: Select the email address that you want Facebook to display.  Select the arrow to the right of the name and click the ‘show on Timeline’ option. Select the Facebook.com address and select ‘hide from timeline’.


4: Click on the save button at the bottom of the dialog box..

Now everything is back to the way you want it… Smile
