Yes, You Have a Facebook Email Address


Published on

You may have heard that Facebook made your Facebook email address (based on your username) the only email address to show on your timeline. No sweat ... we will talk about how to make other email addresses show on your timeline, edit your Facebook username and how to find your Facebook messages and deal with the not-so-scary "Other" folder.
