A Really Shitty Thing Facebook Did That You're Probably Unaware Of

Over the summer, Facebook did something really stupid and selfish that almost nobody (accept savvy tech news followers like myself) even noticed.  They took whatever email you had listed on your profile and replaced it with the completely useless Facebook.com email address linked with your page.  Many tech blogs, including Gizmodo (from whom I lifted that awesome header photo) outlined the steps necessary to reverse this boneheaded move.  After randomly checking 10 profiles from my chat list, I noticed all 10 of them had the Facebook.com email on their profile instead of their personal one.  You may wanna take a second and fix your contact info so people can, ya know, contact you.
