Facebook is trying to hijack your email address

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- If you're a Facebook user, you have a @facebook.com email address, whether you use it or not. Facebook is now automatically posting those addresses to users' profiles and displaying them as the default email address.

Cue the backlash. Facebook told CNNMoney the change has been rolling out for "a few weeks," but many users weren't aware of it until a spate of blog posts and news articles began drawing attention to it on Monday.

"Speaking of hating your users. Facebook forces everyone onto its email system. Really, Facebook?! Really?!" tweeted freelance tech journalist Ron Miller.

Blogger Gervase Markham, one of the first to draw attention to the change, was scathing in his comments on it.

"Facebook silently inserted themselves into the path of formerly-direct unencrypted communications from people who want to email me. In other contexts, this is known as a Man In The Middle (MITM) attack," he wrote, referring to a tactic hackers use to intercept electronic messages. "What on earth do they think they are playing at?"

My medical colleagues no longer use facebook, rather, instead, they now post pictures on instagram. lol.

They ask me, "Dr. Lucino, don't you use instagram?"

I retort, "No, I use Tubag Bohol."

They say, "Tub a what?"
