Facebook asking for my e-mail password

Facebook wants my e-mail password. Really?! I can’t believe Facebook believes this is okay.

You should never provide your e-mail password to anyone and especially not a social media site. Your email account is your identity. Once someone has access to it, they can use your e-mail account to retrieve all your other passwords. Talk about identity theft…

Even if Facebook doesn’t store your password (as they claim), this is still a big no-no; it will make people think this is a reasonable request. It’s NOT!

What is Facebook thinking?
