Forced to link facebook to Oculus or no more friends?

What's the deal with forcing me to add a facebook account to Oculus just to add friends to my Oculus account, I don't even use facebook so why am I being forced all of a sudden?

    Where/how are you being “forced” to use Facebook to add friends? I don’t have a Facebook account, and I haven’t had any trouble sending or receiving friend requests.

    As a test, I just opened the Oculus app on my iPad, went to the friends tab, searched for “stereoman” and sent you a friend request. At no point was I forced to do anything related to a Facebook account.

    You can accept friend requests in the app on desktop. However, when someone sends you a friend invite INSIDE VR/ Oculus home, it asks you to link FB accounts in order to be able to accept friend request. Annoying.

    That isn't what I'm getting. I've sent myself a friend request from my alter-ego to check.

    In the Rift, I accept the request by opening the Social tab on Dash and clicking the tick, I don't use Facebook and haven't linked anything.

    In the Quest it's the People tab, then Friends and Requests. You then see the same thing as the Rift and click on the tick. No linking is necessary.
