Facebook: You've got a new email address

Facebook really wants you to use its email function.

So much so, in fact, that the company switched the default email address that appears in every single user's profile to @facebook.com.

Most people don't even remember that Facebook created its own email program two years ago in a bid to keep users on the site for longer. But the company thinks its high time you check it out, apparently.

Why the sudden change? Two words: stock price. Erin Burnett breaks it down in tonight's Number.

    -My final conclusion to this web site (and show), after watching it for the past half year or so is that, " It wreaks of, 'Only What I Want Hear Will I Allow To Be Posted, Because I Am A Ego-Centred American Program With Nothing Better To Do Than Put The Poor Of My Country Down." -Goodbye, Erin Burnett and Good Luck.
