Yes, Facebook Sucks Sometimes…but there’s a Silver Lining…

Just when they thought no one was looking, BAM! Facebook made another permissions snafu. They changed everyone’s email address to Facebook specific emails and posted them on your timeline. Though an easy fix, it just makes you wonder why the hell they just keeping doing sneaky stuff like this…(If you answered, “because they can” – Ding Ding Ding! You win the toaster oven!)

If you have not fixed it yet, it takes literally 2 minutes.
  1. Click “About” on your profile and scroll down to your email address. Click “Edit” to change them.
  2. Click on the circle next to your Facebook email address and change its setting to “Hidden From Timeline”.
  3. Click on the circle next to your other email addresses and change their settings to “Shown On Timeline”.
  4. Click the Save button at the bottom of the Edit popup (Don’t forget this step).


THEN – just when I thought I could not hate Facebook anymore than I did….they did this…
Aaaarrrgghhhh….must…now….like….Facebook. Again. 

Yes, it a wonderful thing.
Yes, it is long overdue.
Yes, it is what Geek Girl stands for and we won’t rest until there are more women in tech.She is the first woman on the previously all male-dominated board at Facebook.  She is also one of the very few women on any boards in Silicon Valley. Hoo-freaking-ray.
So now I must suck up my love-hate Facebook relationship because a sistuh done good.That’s okay. I’ll take the small victories any day…
