Oculus says they want to force the use of Facebook and our real identity to protect the community. Is this the protection we want?
Oculus has announced a new login update that you can’t (or shouldn’t) ignore. From October 2020, the use of Facebook profiles on Oculus devices would be mandatory. Currently, only e-mail registration is required, except for multiplayer features, which have already required the use of a social network account.
That will change from October. Anyone who buys such a device will need to register their real details via Facebook. Even those with an Oculus account need to link their account to an existing Facebook profile.
We can say that this move is pretty aggressive from Facebook.
With that, Facebook actually wants to completely incorporate Oculus, making the game a community experience, whether we like it or not. In this way, of course, it will be easier to share content from the device or stream video, as our real profile will be under the clutch: the question is, is it worth making our confidential data available to Facebook, especially if it wants it so violently? The funny thing is, while we’ve so far reasonably protected ourselves on the net by hiding behind pseudonyms and avatars, Facebook now wants to push down our throats their lie that we can really protect our identity by revealing it to the entire world.
So Facebook is optional, right? We can unsubscribe from it at any time, right? I think that statement has now been refuted, at least for Oculus users anyway.
Isn’t what happens dangerous?
What do you think about this? Should Facebook be mandatory?
