Facebook email problem due to technical breakdown

Now, there is even more trouble for the largest social network. Those using the mobile version of Facebook suddenly saw a change from their normal email address to a @facebook.com email address.

The company said on Tuesday that there was a technical error caused by “a bug on some devices,” which had been taken when synchronizing the wrong data. “We are working to resolve this problem and will have it resolved soon.”

The cause of the error is the synchronization of address book contacts, said Facebook. For most of the equipment that was checked, this functioned correctly and the primary email address of users will be accepted. On certain devices, however, there was a mistake and instead, they see a @facebook.com address.

Facebook informed all members that the Facebook email address is part of an attempt to combine the online life of the users on one platform: Facebook.
