How to Change Email Address on Facebook

How To: Switch Your Default Email Address on Facebook

Facebook really wants its messaging system to be your primary mode of online communication — so much so that the social networking company changed the default email address that appears in your About section to a facebook.com emailing address. Didn't even know you had one, huh? Despair not! You can still have your email address of choice appear on your profile page with a few quick changes.

Head to your Facebook profile page and select the About section, then click Edit in the Contact Info box. Choose which email address will appear on your Timeline by selecting the circle icon to the far right of the email address. An open circle means that email address appears on your page, while a crossed-out circle indicates an email address that will not appear on your Timeline. You still can adjust privacy settings for each email address, allowing for friends, public, or customized viewing, or even removing the contact information from your page entirely.
