I deactivated my Facebook account 2 years ago for mental health reasons. I found it was a huge positive for me and I have no desire to ever use Facebook again.
So for someone like me who finds it detrimental what am I supposed to do now that it is a requirement?
I have been an Oculus user/developer/supporter since the the Kickstarter, my game Lunar Flight helped legitimize the revival of VR by showing a complete game that defined best practices by design during the Oculus Share days.
The Facebook account requirement to use certain features that never used to be required has pushed me out of the eco system. I can't visit friends Homes anymore, I can't chat with them or join their games through the platform.
I considered making a throw away account but then realized that as soon as I associate my Oculus account with it, Facebook will know who I am. In fact I can't even make a fake account because you are required to use your real name. My account was deactivated, its most likely Facebook will attempt to reactivate it once it realizes who I am which I don't want to do.
I realize that this will fall on deaf ears but someone at Oculus/Facebook needs to hear it whether they care or not.
