Facebook has changed it’s users default email address without permission. Again I say, they are going down the tubes. I remember I noticed I had a Facebook email address, but couldn’t access it. I still don’t know how to access it. Back then, I emailed myself and never received the email sent to my Facebook email account. Maybe it would work now, but now I don’t want it.
Anthony Mullen, interactive marketing analyst at Forrester Research said:
your email is a proxy for your identity on the internet and Facebook wants to usurp people’s pre-existing email identities with their own to help drive up traffic to its site and lock users into its service. Facebook has acted without asking for members’ permission first.
Also I have a question for you fellow bloggers. When posting, next to the text color is background color, the button looks like a highlighter pen. How thee hell do you turn that off? I spend more time in HTML mode removing the background color tags than I spend posting my post. Blogger, like Facebook, is getting worse and worse. WordPress is looking better and better.
