Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Without asking for permission, Facebook has changed users' listed email address to one ending in "@facebook.com."
The changed was discovered Saturday, and has resulted in either users having their @facebook.com address being listed or simply having all of their other addresses be hidden, as happened in my case.
"Man in the Middle" security attack

Serious I just cant believe they even have a single member, they have got so many warnings over time that FB is not a cool place and not they are listed.
Trouble is that many organisations use FB as their primary communication channel. You want to know when the next meeting of your PTA / sports club / choir etc is being held, you must have an account at FB.
and they email you can Facebook see the content? The content would be on their servers now wouldn't it. This sounds almost criminal.
I had read that it only affect accounts that use Timeline.
Facebook's Email Change Riles Users
But the article does quote an interesting set of numbers for email accounts at Hotmail, Yahoo! and Gmail:
According to the most recent available data from comScore, Microsoft's Hotmail was the most popular Internet-based email service globally as of May, with about 325 million unique visitors. Yahoo's service ranked second, with roughly 298 million users, while Google's Gmail garnered about 289 million users.

lexipixel's correct, it's nothing to do with timeline.
My e-mail was set to private, yet they made the @facebook one public.
