I hate the fact they changed the permissions, I used to love to be able have my profile hidden from certain friends 90% of them! Oh well we make do with what we got. I think timeline was rushed, it's still a bit iffy if you ask me. I wish we would be able to control the size of the damn timeline picture, It's way too big. LOL

When I set up my account a couple of years ago (yes, my daughter made me do it) I disabled email notifications. In the past few weeks they came trooping in just the same, and short of marking facebook emails as spam/junk I haven't found a way to switch them off again.

I just checked my FB email account. I don't have any notifications. I turned it off right from the start and it remains off.

I turned them off rightaway too, but they started trooping in a few weeks ago anyway.

Just now, though, my googl-fu worked. Here are the instructions on how to stop facebook's email notifications. The method is needlessly cumbersome, but hopefully it works.

If you haven't been there for awhile maybe that was a new feature, and maybe I've already done that one. I don't know. They keep changing things! :x

FOr the last 10 hours I haven't been able to log into face book. It keeps telling me that it's been down for maintenance on the database on which my account is stored. Can anyone confirm that if they are having the same problem as well? My old account still works, (I just re logged into it about an hour ago), but the new one which one I still use is still out of action.

A number of people (OK, a lot of people) have been posting the following status update on facebook:

I have posted a link to snopes as a Facebook update but people persist in getting sucked in to the hoax and it just keeps appearing.

Please read either of the link so you can confirm the hoax.
