Don't require Facebook for social features
Your recent demand that all social users engage through Facebook is a bad decidion. I will not allow my children to be exposed thru Facebook so you can make a few pennies in marketing kickbacks. We will never participate in an Oculus social media again and I will actively campaign online against you from this point on.
Currently not able to use social features. I will not link a Facebook account to my gaming accounts or other social media accounts under any circumstance. Dear Zuckerberg, we know that a product like Facebook is only free when WE are the product. But we pay good money for Oculus hardware and games. Leave us alone.

Same, such a nightmare. I had to reactivate FB that I deactivated for 2 years and planned to delete.
Please just make it optional!
Mark Collins commented
I’m in agreement, I don’t want to be forced to connect through Facebook just to use social features, especially for ones which it wasn’t required for before, it just feels dishonest and like you are taking advantage of us
Yes a very bad decision. I would not like to mix the two. A lot a people are just not into vr. I would keep these two universes parallel.
I already plan to move to another platform just because of this. I have stopped buying from the Oculus store in preparation of that move.

I do not use Facebook. Forcing this will push me to another product.
oof I was looking into upgrading my rift to a rift s or quest but looks like I'll be jumping off the oculus ship
Duane Ford commented
If it ends up being required then I guess I just won't use those features as I don't have a Facebook act.
Certainly prefer they change their status on this as I WON'T be signing up to Facebook for it.

My best friend hasn't been able to get his Facebook and Oculus accounts to work together in the first place and got no help from Oculus support. Our group (4 of us that meet online regularly) has started using Discord for communications and have bought far less Oculus exclusives since the change.
My SO and I removed ourselves from Facebook in 2018. Wiped it. And we're not going back for any reason. If Oculus wants to cut its own throat trying to push Facebook, we'll be switching to Steam, and if the hardware stops working, index. Facebook. Ugh. Never again.
I could have at least understood them making a NEW optional app that had social features that they required facebook to use. I still wouldn't have used it, but i wouldn't be upset either... But to go back and REMOVE features that have already worked just fine and put them behind a Facebook wall retroactively is disgusting. I was oculus biggest supporter, now i tell everyone I can to stay away or go for index. When it's time for an upgrade ill 100% be switching to any competitor. Ill happily pay more to not have facebook shoved up my A**
Rift owner. If Facebook is required I’ll jump ship from oculus to index. I don’t and will not use Facebook.
Pierre Christoffersen commented
It's malicious to require Facebook. If it's not removed I will switch to Index or similar.
Joy A commented
Quest owner, won't upgrade if Facebook usage is forced. Just means I'll use my Quest less and my Index more.
Rift S owner here. I will never use facebook again. If I am forced to, I will simply sell my Rift and buy an Index.
Jacob Kraniak commented
Kind of ironic that in order to vote in this very poll, you need to log in with a social app. Facebook or Google.
Quest owner. No thanks.
CV1 owner, no thank you
This requirement would push me to the index.
