Ability to search/add Oculus Users who are my Facebook friends from "suggested friend menu" (not just on install)
When I set up my Oculus Quest 2 I was shown a "these are your Facebook friends who use Oculus"... I skipped it at the time. Can't find it anywhere now. Support does not seem to have a link to find this menu, suggesting factory reset to see it again. But of course this isn't really an answer and won't help me find new Facebook/Oculus friends in the future.
I would like to suggest to have this added under the "People -> Add" option. A simple - Search existing Facebook/New Oculus friends.
This tab currently shows me people I am already Facebook/Oculus friends but it shows me their Oculus friends, not MY Facebook friends who have Oculus accounts which seems like a better suggestion.

Imagine forcing an entire social media platform into a system, only to not let consumers make use of it when they want to. The current solution is really to manually ask for who has it. Really? Should be an easy fix, the feature is already there, just let use see it whenever we want in the Friends tab.

So frustrating, I thought I would set it up properly later... but never saw that option again. So annoyed!!

Yah I wish I could do this too. I wasn't the person who set up my oculus quest... so unless I go through almost 1000 people I will only be able to be friends with the ones I randomly meet in VR... super lame...
Talk about ridiculous.
Isn't one of the points of the Oculus to enjoy the company of friends? It's certainly Facebook's philosophy.
Sort it out software developers, please, can't believe how ridiculous this is...
I honestly can't believe this doesn't already show you your own Oculus-ready Facebook friends, and instead shows you random friends of friends that you've never heard of before. Isn't this the whole point of linking your Facebook account?
This is absolutely a good idea. The same thing happened to me. Now I want to see which of my FB friends have an Oculus and there's no quick way to do that.

I skipped this step since I was in a hurry. It is horrible that I cannot get a list of all of my fb friends to show up again now that I have tine to go through the list. Please fix this!

Exactly - I want to find which of my FB friends have Oculus accounts (assuming they choose to share this info). I don't want to type hundreds of individual names in the search bar one at a time. At the very least allow users to access the menu option from when you first link accounts.
