Facebook Has Renamed Your Address Without Even Asking

Many Facebook users are not aware that the social media network renamed all user’s default email addresses to [name] so that their messages would be forwarded to their Facebook profile inbox rather than to their regular email address.

The change annoyed many Facebook users, especially since it was done without permission and affected the address book settings on many smart phones, causing users to miss important email messages. Users had to manually alter the settings for their account so that the correct email address was displayed.

After numerous users complained about the change, Facebook blamed a bug within its apps and has set about fixing the problem.
