As far as Facebook is concerned, your email is your identification.Hong Kong WhatsApp Number List
This is true for other social networks like LinkedIn, and is slowly catching on to many other Web 2.0 services.

So combining the 'email' and 'username' fields makes a lot of sense.Unlike in the past where users switched emails frequently, we now have and gmail and personalized accounts that we can take with us as we switch jobs Email is private at least, as private as Hong Kong WhatsApp Number List snail mail and if my bank feels comfortable sending me alerts and other information over email, than it is definitely secure enough for the rest of us.

Not good.
