Remove Mandatory Facebook Login!
Remove Mandatory Facebook login in order to accept friend requests and use the Oculus app. I have never had Facebook nor do i want it. I just want to play vr. I don’t want to have to have facebook to enjoy my 500$ Virtual Reality Headset with my friends.
******** Oculus. You lied to us.

I brought my Quest just pretty recently and I had NO IDEA about this facebook login **** because it was never mentioned anywhere on the f*cking info page. I've deleted my facebook account already years ago and I will absolutely not making a new one, just so I can have access to full functionality on my 400$ device.
I guess I'll enjoy my time with some singleplayers for as long as I'm allowed to and then refund everything, sell my Quest and get a headset at another vr company, UNLESS Oculus gets their f*cking sh*t together!
I also do not, and never will, have a Facebook account. I complained, but they refused to listen or even acknowledge my complaint.
As I understand it, the full functionality of the device I bought in good faith is now – over a year later – being held *******, and will indeed be sacrificed, if I do not meet the demands of joining a social media platform.
I understand it for new customers. They know what they are getting themselves into. I, however, bought this with no such stipulations attached.
A Facebook account was not a pre-requisite for full functionality.
When my device loses functionality because I refuse to give in to unreasonable and despicable demands, I believe I am entitled to compensation.
Oculus / Facebook refused to acknowledge this and instead directed me to this forum. I am disgusted.
I do not use Facebook. I WILL NOT use Facebook. It's absolutely ridiculous that I can no longer connect with friends on the Oculus platform, with the Oculus account you are now holding *******, without it. This is a surefire way to make me abandon this platform for a more reputable competitor. Implementing something like this after adoption and against earlier promises unethical to say the least...
I was promised that a facebook account would not be needed. Now that facebook has lied to me I am supposed to make an account on their website and believe that they will keep all future promises? I think not! Please think this one through and go back to allowing oculus accounts like you promised.
I never asked for Facebook to be an enforced requirement to access this device.

I've bought over 1000$ of games with the information that Facebook would not be accessing my data while I use the VR hardware.
Now that you've changed this policy, I would like to have a refund for my games as this is not what I or anyone else signed up for years ago when getting a CV1 Oculus headset.
**** facebook. This **** is illegal and you know it. That's why Germany kicked your *** out of their country until you get your **** together. Hopefully the rest of the world catches on so you can't sell you're mandatory facebook ******** to harvest that sweet sweet data you wanna offload so bad to advertisers and Cambridge Analytica.
Yep, this is horrible
I was so excited about the new Headset, but after this Announcement I will no buy another Headset from Oculus. As soon as the HP Reverp 2 releases in my Country i will switch to that. Facebook is not a company i want to associate with my gaming life.
Sold my Rift S in the last week because of this. Still wanted to sign it for all the others who still hold onto their HMDs.

Don't have a facebook, got rid of it. Don't want one.
Bought this headset well before facebook was required. Probably gonna sue if I'm forced to make a new facebook account.
Leave Oculus to be Oculus; mandatory Facebook account is anti-consumer.
Considering facebook requires an age limit to make an account, but not to use Oculus is shady business at the least, and possible criminal. If I cant have my kids play with their friends why would I buy Oculus ever again? Be ready to be sued by the masses.
I was going to buy a quest this autumn,and had recommended to friends,will not be doing so now because of this compulsory facebook s''t .Hope oculus lose a lot of sales because of this.It should DEFINITELY be optional.
I don't want to use my Facebook account. You can be ban from Facebook for nothing and lost your library. Nope

As A futuristic retard. I believe in technology. Now I am not anti facebook/Google/ etc.. I use them everyday. They changed the world 🌎 also in a good way. Thanks to them many people around the world make a living by intertaining eachother. Now trying to take control of the public to make it Safer and Anti/Hack/Scammer/criminal etc... is all a good thing. Even if people are doing this because they were forced into it because they have no Money/ small space to live/ abuse etc...
Also people who are shy/depressed/just enjoy being anonymous about what they do to themselves.
Well INTERTAINMENT is very very important for everyone.
Just what you big money makers have to understand is what you do now has consequences for younger generations to come. More and more you play this game. You will be treated worse because of how you treat them/us/we/I and make rules and laws to earn Money. Yes it is our GOD and yes we all need it and want it. Yet can't cuz we r clones/we scums of this strange dymention give us some slack and less dirt. Why do we all have to pay for the shit that was done to you guys a decade ago. It makes no sense that generation after generation is being fuked over by people who got fuked over in life b4 us. We all have our needs. All theses needs exist because we became board.
Privacy is only something we see as thats what we only have leftover from A&E, but even that is BS. Our species Just idolize our body parts/create digital engagement so that we may release whatever tension we have.
So many good people turn evil because they see no light at the end of the tunnel. Help them first before pretending to go to mars and invest billions on fake entertainment. Make this reality Clean and add Harmony with a ballanced equality. Remove Old religions/there is only one GOD and there is no pizza party involved in that!
Then Privacy will be gladly given. Because it will no longer be looked at as Privacy.

Bin auch dagegen... Habe mir die quest geholt eben weil ich nicht zu Facebook gezwungen wurde, das war der Kaufgrund. Mir wurde weiterhin gesagt occulus bliebe unabhängig...
Was jetzt passiert ist Betrug am Kunden und zwangsenteignung.
OCCULUS zieht ihr das durch seid ihr für mich gestorben....
Interesting that they haven't placed this in the Declined status in spite of the fact that they told us to ... with this requirement.

I'd be far less annoyed with a required facebook login if facebook would back off on the policies forcing people to use their real name. I am not being doxed on the internet just to play VR games not dealing with that.
Update: saw the new ToS it seems facebook actually listened about the real name crap unless I missed something it seems they finally are giving users who use fake names so long as they aren't harassing some leeway.
Update again: nope was wrong it's still there...
