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.

I own a some PCVR headsets including Rift S, I wanted to buy buy Quest 2 but I won't if I need a Facebook login.
Will hold on to my original Quest until the login deadline. Then just sticking with Pimax, Valve, Samsung and/or whomever may be a competitor at that point.

I'm not buying a new headset because of this.
I'll switch to Valve if this stay
I will never use the BoomerBook account I made for my Q2 lmao
Will not be using Oculus until mandatory FB is gone
I abandoned Oculus platform and refuse to buy another Oculus headset until the facebook login requirement is removed.
You lost another Quest 2 customer with this policy

This is a must. It’s disgusting that to use our £300/£400 Quest 2 we have to link it to our Facebook account. We just want to play games and add friends, etc through Oculus. It shouldn’t have anything to do with Facebook.
I have a Quest, I will definitely upgrade if you remove the Facebook login requirement. If you don't I can definitely wait a couple of years for your competition to catch up.

Never used Facebook, never will.
I will never buy another Oculus/facebook product if you don't remove this requirement. I don't care how awesome the hardware is.
what I want to use is oculus, not facebook
Even when someone can forgive enough to use honest information to create a FB account just for playing Quest 2.
BAM AI just get a tantrum and ban the honest user since when someone don't care for SNS function and just play their VR, they WONT use Facebook normally which automatically put them in suspicious activity zone.
If you gonna pull this unreasonably move for squeesh some money, at least MAKE IT WORK.
OFC the easiest way to end this is just to let the Oculus account have its comeback.
Since the RiftS/Quest1 users still keep their Oculus account until 2023 (If not sync to FB account)
This mean the Oculus account system itself is still there, working as intended.
Use things that are already there, how hard that will be?
yeah, facebook login is dumb af
