Angst Over Facebook Email Policy and Address Book Changes
Users report friends' address book entries are being changed without their knowledge and a survey of tech sites around the Internet shows many Facebook users are increasingly upset at Facebook's changes to users' email addresses.
Last week it was revealed Facebook quietly switched many users' default email address from the one they had chosen to their Facebook email address. Over the weekend users began to report that the email changes are affecting address books.
One user reported that her contact entry in a colleague's address book had changed from her work email address to her Facebook email address. Work emails, she said, were suddenly going to her Facebook email account. Worse still, she said, when she checked the account there was no sign of the diverted messages.
