Facebook will ‘look into’ its own sneaky email switching

3 Jul


Facebook royally ticked off many of its users last week when it made their @facebook.com email addresses the primary ones displayed on profile pages without even asking permission. But now, Facebook is claiming that it never meant to switch its users’ default email settings and is pledging to investigate just how this happened. PerPC Magazine, a Facebook spokesman said that the company is “having the engineers look into it and will get back to you as soon as we can with more details.” Facebook’s statement on its email syncing policies comes after Adobe employee Rachel Luxemburg reported on her personal blog this past weekend that Facebook had pushed its own email account onto others’ contacts lists, meaning her friends, family and coworkers saw her @facebook.com address as her primary one on most devices.
