Internet & Networking "If you are on Facebook but have never taken a particular shine to Facebook's e-mail capability, Facebook is intent on changing your mind. As of Friday, the company seems to have quietly given or replaced the display e-mail addresses of all of its users with an @facebook.com address, routing any e-mail communiques you would have received back to its own Messages inboxes." Scummy doesn't even begin to describe this.

Uh, no, no hijacking. If you look at someones profile they have contact information there, and under email you now have your @facebook.com email address even if you used another email address before. There is no confusion about where mails are going. Also you of course as usual get notifications about messages forwarded to your registered "main" mail account.

I don't really see how this is a "scam", but changing peoples profiles without warning is indeed a bit scummy. I don't think there is much damage done to anyone either way however.

Changes like this are what investors like to see. More control= more potential
