I was invited to join the F Reality Podcast over the weekend with VR Oasis’s Mike, Nathie, Rowdy Guy, and Zimtok5 to be able to talk about this past week’s news about Facebook’s new requirement that all new VR users and hardware will be required to use a Facebook Login after October 2020, and existing users can still use their Oculus accounts on existing hardware until January 2023.
The brought me on to discuss some of the privacy implications of this change, but also to talk about the broader context of Facebook and their relationship to the VR ecosystem in light of my last two podcasts with VR indie developer Anton Hand as well BigScreenVR’s Darshan Shankar.
It’s a lively discussion, and represents a range of different perspectives coming from the gaming enthusiast demographic. I’m excerpting our 75-minute discussion from the F Reality podcast, and share some additional thoughts and takeaways at the end.
