Marti has a real handle on what is going on with Internet Marketing.  Her group The Art of Marketing You is a fantastic venue for very well written articles on a variety of subjects. I am reposting this one because of it's importance to all of us who use Facebook whether we like it or not. Thanks Marti

Hi guys, are you in the mood for a quickie? Cool, here we go...

 In case you didn't notice, in their seemingly never ending quest to abuse privacy, Facebook changed the email address in your profile to an @Facebook address. Here is an example from my own FB profile...

This is so not cool but another example of why Facebook needs to get a clue about Permission Marketing. But here is the easy fix, just check out this screenshot as a guide and follow the steps below...

- click on the "about" button in your profile

 

scroll down to your email address then click the "edit" button

 

- now click on the circle next to your Facebook email addr. and change the setting to "Hidden From Timeline"

 

- next click on the circle next to your other email address(es) and change their settings to "Shown On Timeline"

 

- then hit the SAVE BUTTON near the bottom of the Edit popup and you're done

 Yes, it was simple enough to fix but should have never happened. Just another example of Facebook doing stuff they should never be doing. Go figure! Later...

 P.S. Because of the insane amount of spam, self promotion, etc... being posted by various vendors and suppliers, this group is going back to it's original intention (see group guidelines) as a place for "for real estate agents and brokers who want to share their real world marketing ideas and experience". We don't have time to waste moderating and filtering out all the spammy stuff.
