I, as a customer, was acquired by FB when they acquired Oculus. I have been an early adopter, had DK1 and 2, and have encouraged 32 people to select Oculus. Oculus Rift delivered on a long standing dream for consumer VR.
I have supported the company by purchasing my preferred VR games via the Oculus store where possible, often taking a financial hit, in order to support a key VR hardware creator.
While I can appreciate a level of optional integration with the parent companies social media - should there come a time that there is an absolute requirement to login to FB, I will and no longer make any purchases through the Oculus store. I will provide my point of view to the folk that purchased based on my past advice, and let them make their own decisions. There is no reason valid to a consumer to enforce the authentication through a separate social media platform, in my view.
I have had the Rift since a couple of months after release. I will be looking for new gen hardware in the next 12 months, and will not consider Oculus if social media login is a requirement.
It would be a shame to damage long standing loyal partnerships you have with your customers; so I recommend you continue to keep FB login as an option to enable social media features for those that want it.
