Many people ask themselves how Facebook user emails work. Are they like regular email addresses? Or any different than that? Can you use them to send emails to any other email providers worldwide?

To start off, yes, basically Facebook user emails can be considered the same as other emails, but with special functions. Of course, as you’d guess, these functions are in the layout and the delivery mode: the emails you send are treated like they’d be Facebook messages, but actually they are regular emails sent by you.

Receiving any email to your address@facebook.com is also tricky, as it gets back to you in the form of Facebook messages. Since many people find it handy to follow and keep a record of it, Facebook messages were never complained about and are quite easy and flexible in usage. However, your spam filter for incoming emails is also the Facebook-way of privacy: you can set your custom message privacy settings on your Facebook profile and these settings will affect what you receive and from who you receive.

As you know, you can choose your own custom Facebook link. On April 12, 2012 Facebook announced:

“Starting today, we’re updating addresses on Facebook to make them consistent across our site. Now, the address people use to get to your timeline and send you email on Facebook will be the same. Updated addresses will be rolled out over the next few weeks. Note: Anyone who already selected an email address will not be affected.

Nowadays society came to a point of ignoring privacy. We go public on everything, we’d even write an online journal of where we are and where we’ll go tomorrow. With Facebook, your profile and timeline may be private or public, but it’s highly advisable to make it private. People are wondering why they would need private profiles and private posts on the timeline since:

  1. Whatever gets posted is not a secret
  2. Their friends should see the activity and all posts and eventually friends of friends as well
  3. People who don’t know them wouldn’t be interested in their profiles

Well, there is some amount of truth in that point of view but Facebook timeline privacy settings should be considered because:

  1. The less people know about you the more you are protected and can live a normal life. Think about all the Hollywood stars … do they have a normal life with enough privacy?
  2. There are weird people and even worse, psychos. The last thing you want is having them look at your personal information, your location, posts or anything else on your profile.

There are basically two different scenarios on Facebook timeline privacy settings:

Get ready to get updated with the latest and more sophisticated way of presenting yourself in Facebook. Facebook Timeline as it is known as, is a better and richer version of the ‘profiles’ that we have at present.

If you were into thinking that nothing could get better as far as Facebook is concerned, be ready for yet another revolution in the name of Timeline. You can as much, wish adieu to your existing humble profile page and welcome an astonishingly splendid way of presenting yourself to the world from hence forth. If you are seeing the Facebook Timeline option flashing at some corner of your account at the moment, click on it and get started. For all you know, in the next few months, it may become mandatory in your part to glorify your presence before the world! Following are a few things you should know about the Timeline for Facebook.

Timeline, in simple words, is a new way of presenting your image to the world, most of all to those who you want should see you in a new light. This is revolutionary way to ensure that people get to know the ‘quality’ of you and your life than get a whiff of the everyday mundane activities. Say for instance, in the present manner of presentation of your profile, the older events are always pushed back irrespective of their importance. The newer posts, even if they are of no significant value in reflecting the quality of your life, will take the hot seat. Thus, if a very old and long lost friend locates you in face book, they will not get to see the very important events that may have occurred in your life in the past few months, but may come across insignificant events like ‘what your slippers looked like when your dog chewed it’.

Facebook Timeline ensures that you get to mark all your important pictures, stories, posts etc, irrespective of the time when they had been posted, and this is what your friends, rather the whole world will get to see once they reach your account. You will also have access to almost all of the older posts, pictures and stories chronologically. For example, of you want to see some event that may have happened somewhere in January 2008, all you have to do is click on 2008 and then the month option and view the details.
