Just launched Oculus Home and now we are greeted with a prompt about tying in to Facebook account.
It did give me option to continue with Oculus, but said some features might not be available.

I thought we were good with what we currently have for a couple of years.
So we are going to have limited accounts already?

Well probably not - guess it will depend on what features might be limited by my making that selection after starting Oculus. Obviously they are trying to get I guess as many as they can to do the tie in. I could have sworn though they said for current users things will remain just as they are until 2023. But that "encouragement" to tie it in with Facebook now and stating our accounts would be limited I was not expecting already.

Of course I should not be surprised after all it is Facebook lol.

Edit: Launched Oculus Home a couple more times and was not greeted again with that message. At least it is not every launched I am getting it. I suppose everyone who does not yet have a linked account will be getting the same.

No change here. I even logged out and back in to test.

This is what I was referring to:
Further, the company says that existing users who opt not to merge their Oculus account with their Facebook account can continue using their headset as normal until the end of 2022, after which the company no longer guarantees “full functionality” without the use of a Facebook account.
https://www.roadtovr.com/oculus-facebook-account-required-new-users-existing-users/

But from what is sounds from the prompt I got today ( wish I had of grabbed a screenshot), functionality will be limited starting after I selected to not merge my Oculus account with a FB account.

Of course though if they are only talking social features then that is fine as I am not interested in those.
Perhaps only those that have not elected to merge accounts yet will see that message upon start of Oculus software.

Sounds it was a little early for this to be deployed - must have been a glitch that was fixed.

 ^^ Yeah i had that twice, but just picked no and continued, now if only after 3 plus years of continuous "would you like to setup your rift" message after you set up your rift, before the day comes when they ditch any native pcvr headsets.........oh wait! lol

I just got the notification too.

* First time, I clicked on keep oculus, and then oculus home crashed.
* Oculus home restarted, and it asked me for a second time - I also clicked keep oculus, and it told me it was emailing me to set a password as my oculus and facebook accounts were already linked, then oculus home crashed again.
* After oculus home restarted yet AGAIN - it asked me a third time, so I clicked facebook as apparently the accounts were already linked anyway so no point?

And that last time, it finally managed to accept the answer and not crash again.

I still do not see any Merge option, just a Link option which can currently be unlinked (tested this out ok).  Maybe soon the Link option will disappear?
