Before the update, we had friends and voice chat. That's, minimally, a core requirement for being social. I've stopped recommending the Quest to others because this new requirement is a stupid, community-crippling change.
The text messaging and calendar events are fine optional extras for those who do want to opt-in to a Facebook-centric experience. If the change was as advertised... if it was actually a value-added proposition to log into Facebook, rather than a feature lock-out, it would have been fine.
If you think you're using the logic that "a Facebook account is free" to justify this change, then you're ignoring the social cost. VR has an ample supply of hurdles, especially for newcomers. Stapling a pervasive social network to that experience is practically a non-starter.Anonymous supported this idea ·
