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.

Definitely unethical

However, we all know that Facebook makes ALL of its money from advertising and it maximizes its profit via extensive datamining. This is a fact of doing business.

So rather than whine and cry about Facebook's unethical behavior, I personally just limit my usage. I have little more than my professional info on there, stuff that is publically available on other web sites anyway.
