    I do too, but I found that several of my friends who... I now know have Facebook accounts by entering their email addresses without passwords. Sort of defeats the purpose of having a non public profile.

    I would prefer that Facebook not show my profile name and picture when simply adding my email address at an log in screen.

    In fact there should be zero indication of an account or no account on invalid log ins. Public profile or non public profile. I do hope this gets fixed.
