“All is water”

40 notes

Here's a statement from Facebook on the e-mail address change, which they claim was planned.

producermatthew:

“As we announced back in April, we’ve been updating addresses on Facebook to make them consistent across our site. In addition to everyone receiving an address, we’re also rolling out a new setting that gives people the choice to decide which addresses they want to show on their timelines. Ever since the launch of timeline, people have had the ability to control what posts they want to show or hide on their own timelines, and today we’re extending that to other information they post, starting with the Facebook address.”

A Facebook spokesperson, in an email sent to me today regarding several press reports on Facebook’s decision to switch the default email account on a person’s Facebook timeline with a Facebook-provided email address, as outlined by LifeHacker.

Are they trying to see how mad they can make me before I stop using Facebook altogether? Stop controlling what information I show to the world. Let me do that. And “we’ve had this in the works and already told you about it” doesn’t fly. My information is mine. You don’t get to manipulate it.

I had just gotten comfortable again with sharing stuff and being involved in conversations on Facebook…
