Facebook email is an email address for your Facebook messages. It offers Facebook users, a messenger for both desktop and smartphones. The @facebook.com email address was made to make the Facebook primary channel of communication.
Your Facebook email address is simply “username @facebook.com”. On your personal profile page, whatever comes after “Facebook.com” or before “Facebook. Com” is where your username is. For example, you can find me on “Facebook. Com/mercy john”, that means my Facebook email address is “mercy firstname.lastname@example.org”.
Facebook automatically assigns each of its users a Facebook email address after signing up for Facebook. Facebook gives it’s users a Facebook e-mail address which matches their public usernames. Take, for instance, if your Facebook username is Ada Jones, then your Facebook email address will be – Ada_Jones@facebook.com.
It is very important that you have a Facebook username for your Facebook account. You can set up your Facebook username if you don’t like it again. To set up your username, go to your account settings and set it up. Be careful while doing this because Facebook does not allow you to change your Facebook username after a long period of time.
How and when do you use Facebook email
The same way you use your normal email address is basically the same way you use your Facebook e-mail address.
If you want to chat up someone via your Facebook app or Facebook messenger but can’t reach Facebook for some reasons like; if there’s low internet connection in your area, you can email the persons Facebook address and the email (message) will show up in the persons Facebook message box. When the person reads and reply back, you will receive the message as a new email in your email inbox. All you need do is go to your email and check your inbox.
However, you can also send new emails to your friends via your Facebook account. Simply go to Facebook message page, type in the person’s email address in the ‘To bar’, type your message and send. The email will appear in the person’s mailbox as coming from your Facebook e-mail address.
