Facebook's Email Switch Causing More Problems
Remember when it was reported that Facebook was changing users' default email addresses to Facebook email addresses? Well, [a] journalist [named] Violet Blue wrote today that there's feedback from around the web that the change may have negative side effects, namely the alteration of email addresses on personal devices. Possibly as a result, emails are being redirected or even lost.
The social networking site had previously offered users the option of signing on to have a Facebook email address but recently decided to simply automatically sign up all of its users for the service.
Ms. Blue also reported that user contact info would be altered as part of Apple's new iOS 6 Facebook integration. "Facebook for iOS will change address books without any warning," according to the piece.

Jill Duffy's comments for PC Magazine (third link, above) make me want to shout "FINALLY"! It seems that I'm not the only person who is questioning the (dubious) value of FaceTube.
