After a few days in New Orleans for the National Association of Black Journalists Annual Conference which was held in New Orleans, Louisiana, we started reviewing emails and of course, the social media pages like Facebook.
Now many of us by now have received the notification of Facebook creating an email system and assigning an email address to your personal profile, right? Well, you may not have noticed they have added the Facebook email address as a primary and/or only one and hid your previous email address from the public’s view!
Pretty sneaky of them, right? Why not just add theirs and allow both to be viewed? We’re not going to try to figure out why Facebook provided this change, but we WILL tell you 3 easy steps to get your email address back on your profile. (Please note. We’ve been told people have “emailed” us through the Facebook email system, yet no emails have been received thus far in our Creative Director’s account. Therefore, think long and hard before encouraging others to email you through the Facebook system. Besides, you’re working hard to build YOUR brand. Don’t spend more time building theirs.)
Go to the “About” link on your personal profile page and scroll down to the Contact Information section and select “Edit”.
Click on the circle next to your Facebook email address and change the setting to “Hidden From Timeline”.
Now, click on the circle next to your personal/business email address and change the setting to “Shown on Timeline” and then select “Save”.
It’s not a BIG deal, but it is a BIG deal. As always, be sure to take control of your marketing plan and social media is a part of it. Don’t forget if you want to update your email settings or go back and review the feature, please visit Facebook, here for more information.
