LOL! This is just plain stupid... I'm glad I don't have an Oculus or I would have been totally frustrated.
Go read a few comments at the bottom of the blog page, everyone disagree. Incoming backlash... can't wait to see how this will end.
LOL is right... Those are from people already logged in and using Facebook to post dumb comments everywhere they go online.
They have long since been ensnared by the corp with a billion tentacles, so to see them speak against that same system being used for Oculus is laughable, indeed. (BTW, I don't even see that garbage on my main browser, I had to load the page up in Edge to see what you were referring to.)
Back up and get a sense of the bigger picture here... Facebook doesn't give a shit about that very small group of early adopters. Making them happy isn't what is going to sustain VR as a business. This is a step toward reaching the real audience, the mainstream masses that probably have no experience with VR and/or don't yet fully understand what it is, IF they have even heard of it. 99% of those people are on Facebook anyway and use it on a daily basis, so not only will they not think twice about this requirement, they will actually be grateful for the convenience of it.
