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.
Absolutely ridiculous. Everyday theres another reason to hate Facebook. The day I have to link a FB account is the last day I use my $$$$ Oculus.

It's a predator move to force numbers on your failing social network platform Facebook will fade while oculus will remain if your smart Facebook you will keep em sepparate.
If they move forward with this I will be pursuing a refund on my purchases. At the very least I will spend my free time clogging up their support lines.

This was to be expected, such predatory fb behaviour. Disgusting. It was nice while it lasted, but RIP Oculus .
And now it gets even worse. Glad to see they're "listening" to their customers.
I only even have a FB account because I have to for certain business purposes. Otherwise I want absolutely nothing to do with social media, at all, ever. I am literally refusing to use features of my expensive device because of this idiotic requirement. Now a good friend of mine has bought one too (you're welcome FB) and I know he's going to want to connect once he gets it, and so do I. But we both hate FB and now we're going to have no choice but to connect through it. Horrible, and makes me want to use a different company's device as soon as there is a reasonable wireless alternative.
Requiring this is absurd, especially since I can't even get an account created. Says "your account is disabled" yet I have never signed up for a farcebook account before! How can a new account I am trying to create with an entirely new email address I just created be disabled?
Completely idiotic to have this be a requirement for us Quest owners to actually fully use the features of our headset we paid for.
It also feels like a borderline lawsuit. As someone that preordered this last year, I wouldn't have bought this if this was there from the start or if they had said it would eventually be required for the friend/social aspect. Doubt I am the only one.

Please remove mandatory facebook. I can't use the oculus anymore.

I deleted my FB account years ago. I don't intend to ever make a new one. Please fix this nonsense.
We could all just use the Facebook account of a family member or friend (assuming the family member or friend will allow us to). As an added bonus, doing this will ***** over the Facebook data collection metrics. I feel pretty screwed given this requirement, so let's dish it back!
You're Not Getting My Name FB commented
You never used to have to do this with the rift. This is a vile add on that is making me just want to sell my headsets. I'd rather save up for a Valve Index than have to deal with fb. Scummy system.
Remove mandatory Facebook login!
When I purchased the Oculus Quest NOWHERE on the box does it say Facebook required for use of the Quests social features.
This is predatory behavior and I believe illegal?!
I cannot and WILL NOT recommend any Oculus products until this is changed.
I should not have to link my personal social media account, especially Facebook which has a poor track record of maintaining user data!
You cannot even begin to understand the brand damage that is happening here, I see absolutely NO reason Facebook should be linked with my Oculus account.
You want fiercely loyal customers? Then stop this nonsense at once!

Can stress how frustrating it is to be locked out of looking at my own media recorded on my quest. Let alone accepting friend requests.
Eva Weber commented
I totally agree. I've deleted my facebook account years ago and I will absolutely not create a new one (making a fake one is also almost impossible)
I would rather pay an extra fee for an online function (like nintendo does)

My friend let me borrow his extra oculus during quarantine so we could play together and as soon as I set it up I’m faced with a mandatory login just to talk with him. I don’t use Facebook from hearing countless bad experiences with it, and now to play a game on what is a great vr headset, I have to create a Facebook account?
I paid $500 for my Quest just to learn that the entirety of my social features are locked unless I agree to have my data sold on Facebook in order to “personalize” my ads. This is nonsense.. I don’t even use apps like Facebook in the first place. We bought your product, we shouldn’t be required to give you anything else if we don’t want to.
I agree with the others here. I've never had a Facebook account and will never have one. Facebook is the bane of our society, truly an evil form of capitalism. No thanks Oculus unless you make the change.
You don't need more data from me.
I literally never use any of the functions on my Quest that require Facebook, and while I love the Quest, I would absolutely switch to another manufacturer's product if it were competitive on VR features at a similar price point, but didn't involve Facebook.
