Want more spam? Do nothing.

Facebook recently announced that it would be killing its email service. Wait, what?  Facebook does email?  Yep!  And every single one of us was forced to use it 2 years ago.

So what now?  All messages are now being forwarded to your personal email account on file. 

Since each username is in the url of their profile, anyone who can find your profile can now send emails to yourusername@facebook.com.   Instead of going to your facebook inbox,  these emails will now be forwarded to your private email unless you turn it off.  

Even worse than your friends of friends reaching you,  unscrupulous marketers can scrape these email addresses based on your likes and flood your inbox with spam! 

Follow the arrows below to stop the madness.
