UPDATE:

A spokesperson for Facebook provided the following statement to Kotaku: “We’re working with Sony to finalize an updated contract designed to improve the Facebook integration on PlayStation. While these discussions are in progress, Facebook features will not be available on PlayStation 4. We hope to bring these features back as soon as our teams reach agreement.”

PS4 will lose Facebook integration starting today. You won't be able to share screenshots, videos, trophies and the like. Profile pictures imported from Facebook will also no longer be used.

Personally not a great loss, i use Twitter to share my things anyway, i use FB only for Posts of Pages i Follow, if those ones would go to Twitter i wouldn't even use Fb at all, for me it's awful! It doesn't show like 70% of the pages i follow, so what's the point of me Liking a page -_-

Probably wasn't working very well anyways. I envy those who so easily willingly link everything to one thing. Or im just too stupidly careful about nothing.

Guess we'll be learning a new FB related scandal soon, and thanks to inside information, Sony's using their emergency 1000 feet pole :D time to sell your last shares, I guess 😂

 

Or a contract's up and FB's asking for too much at renewal?

So what trophies does this affect, i remember one of the cabellas games as well as the michael jackson game on ps3 had a trophy tied to facebook that became unachieveable after facebook dropped ps3 support.

Some mobile games like Dissidia Opera Omnia will also lose FB integration, it has something to do with FB itself.

It is weird that it's happening with immediate effect.

 

Never used it anyway.

Will this affect the PS4 version of The Last of Us, in the same way it did the PS3 release i.e cause major freezing issues when attempting to access the MP?

Kind of liked posting pictures with it using facebook, but guess if I want to do that now I'll either have to post them to twitter or use a USB stick and copy and paste images.
Never really posted videos since I just post those on youtube.

Can you imagine spamming Facebook with a notification for every trophy? 😂

 

It was cool that it pulled my profile picture as my avatar but I'm not going to lose sleep about not having that anymore.

Facebook says they’re working on a new agreement with Sony. Matters little to me. Never use it on PS4.

I abandoned my Facebook account six years ago so it doesn’t bother me. Also, I never linked the two due to security reasons.

This is great news. Less integration of terrible services, the better.

 

Now if we could get rid of Spotify.....

What the hell are you thinking!?

Spotify is a bliss from the grinding god to prevent players going insane with stupid grinding and repetitive tasks.

 

Tony Hawk's and GTA playlists are god tier for farming.

I stopped using Facebook anyway after dealing with every account I make constantly getting disabled or locked so personally no loss for me. 

 

I didn’t tend to use that share feature anyway.

Real issue is not being able to get rid of something 3rd party on my device, regardless of its usefulness. Also integration of other websites, especially when they clearly don't care about security/privacy. There's like 5 other things we can't uninstall, Spotify is just an example.

 

Rant

 

I have to have noise. I hate current streaming services for many reasons, don't want to get into details. Mainly selection and catering to the majority (that's fine, it's a business).  So I run my own.

 

Not a brag, but I run 2 TVs in the living room. I try to get people to convert, because it is so much better. Play a game, run Plex or Twitch., podcast, etc..
