New info has surfaced mentioning that the PS4 Facebook support is ending soon. Here's what's said by PSN Asia.
Won’t be missed.
Yeah, I rarely used it myself and in fact turned it off
Used once... pointless feature afaic.
never used it myself ....PSn is by itself the best social gaming network ...doesnt need support form useless FB
Good to see it removed. FB/Zuckerberg is actual scum
He really is. I deleted my facebook and insta like 8 years ago. I'm much happier now.
@Atticus I second this
wtf?! there's FB on PS4?! LOL! Either I missed it or completely forgot about it.
You're not alone, that's why it wouldn't surprise me if it went away. I'm sure they know exactly how many people are using it, and it may just be that it's a pointless feature.
Probably means that facebook is going to release some platform to play games on.
Forgot I could post to it. Might as well just post to youtube and link it to your fb
Does anyone use their console for anything beyond gaming or netflix?
My TVs already have YouTube and Netflix support so I don't need to powerup a console just for that.
i use mine as a karaoke machine. im from japan, we have joysound and dam that we can donwload from the store
That sounds really cool
I miss SingStar...
Yeah I never used the FB on ps4
Just gaming. I YouTube and Netflix on other devices.
just gaming now. I use my 4K TV apps for YouTube, Netflix, FUNimationNow etc. Then my PC for everything else
Gaming Netflix and YouTube lol why tf would anyone use Facebook on a console 😂
Gaming and youtube. Never used netflix before coz piratebay exists ayyyy
just gaming for me. i use my tv for netflix/hulu.....etc and have a bluray player for movies.
Facebook is for boomers now days.
Man. I’m gonna miss bragging about my trophies and impressing the chicks with my gameplay vids
I know you're being sarcastic, but I'm trying to imagine a world where chicks could actually be impressed by gameplay vids. Unfortunately, chicks IRL either don't get videogames at all, or they're gamer chicks with way too much cred to be impressed by anything I could do (and chicks of that variety also don't spend their days on Facebook as they're way too busy using their PS4s for genuine gaming). Sigh.
Wow, good news for once … Sony is probably as worried as consumers about being connected to the Capone of data theft can you imagine the hurt for Sony if a major leak of their personal user data was exposed through the Facebook app ?? makes me wonder if this is happening because that has happened and they've covered it up … Possibilities
If you agree to use it then it's your fault not SONY
Never utilized it...
Yes please! I don’t see the relation with gaming thank you. Edit: Lastly I rather my gaming data be sold by Sony the actual game platform over Facebook the truly invasive data sellers.
Not even on Facebook... Zero shits given.
Haha I’ve never used it much other than to sign in and that’s it! I’ve never touched it since then. I personally never enjoyed FB like every other person in life. Never understood what people see in it.
You mean you don't want to post everything about yourself on a platform that's not known for keeping things private and spend every waking moment fretting over what complete strangers and people you haven't seen in years think about that thing you did last week? What the heck is wrong with you? Privacy and peace and quiet are overrated. /s
You don't know what people see in being able to reconnect with individuals that might have lost contact with over the years?
I use it on rare occasions for family and friends who use it to contact me once in a while. Sometimes I'll post a random thing about something, but other than that, I couldn't care less about people's random musings, or pictures of them with cat ears and colored nose tips. I maybe log in once every 2-3 weeks....usually because I get a message about something, at which point I'll go through people's posts to catch up. I do find facebook a fascinating example of hive mind thinking and follow the leader acts of idiocy though. Never used it for any PS4 stuff, because I just don't care to share with the world every thing I do while gaming.
I forgot about this feature meh a useless feature
They don't even support FB streaming so whatever.
I actually use the real name requests a lot on my PS4
Oh no. Whatever shall we do. /s
Ye fb is a load of crap now. Join twitter🙂
They are all crap.
Twitter is just as bad
Will not be missed. Never used it. Less bloatware the better. Facebook have been reduced to garbage anyways.
It's always interesting to see people get happy over losing a feature that was optional, that others might have enjoyed.
Don't like Facebook so... good riddance.
I used it only once and my contacts complained that my info and trophies kept popping on their pages. Disabled and forgot it existed.
wow why even continue selling the console now? /s fuck facebook
There was support? ok.
As a Reviewer, I'll miss this feature. The major benefit was you could toggle the privacy and upload 30images at once, locked so only you can see them. It was a quick and easy way to get images for embargoed games onto your pc if you can't find your USB drive. However, the auto posting everytime you get a trophy (which was a thing) stopped working a few years back. I just hope this means we now get full length tweets.
I'm thinking that this is directly linked to Sony's plans for their Communities feature. The Facebook formula would work well - communities are bland at the moment and it would be a nice feature to have on PS5.
Good, I hate Facebook
Facebook is a dumpster fire.
Only thing it offered was facebook profile picture over a PS Avatar. So what are we really losing anyway? Nothing honestly. It doesn't offer anything else.
You can make a custom avatar using the PlayStation app on your phone
Facebook gaming is bigger then Mixer 😂
It was actually pretty useful for uploading a screen to your pc (privately) without messing around with USB sticks.
Not being on Facebook, I couldn't give s toss.
