Facebook quietly changed your default email: How to change it back

While you were going about your business, Facebook decided to replace your Gmail account, Yahoo account or whatever your default email account was without your consent.  

Every Facebook user's default email has been switched to @facebook.com, an email system that was launched a while back, but didn't necessarily take off, according to Gizmodo.com.  

But just because it's been forced on Facebook users doesn't mean it has to be a permanent change.

Gizmodo.com has outlined to following instructions to change your default email back to whatever you wanted to be:

  1. Go to your timeline and click "About" under your contact info.
  2. Scroll to "Contact info" and select edit.
  3. Switch the crossed out circle symbols to a full circle for the inbox options you want to be seen on your profile.
  4. If you want to deselect your Facebook email account, switch it from the full circle to the crossed out circle, to hide it from your timeline.
