You can no longer share clips, screenshots and trophies to your FB account from your PS4. Something so simple, convenient and that has been around for the entire gen just now suddenly gone without cause.

https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/get-help/help-library/apps---features/playstation-apps---features/ps4-facebook-integration-removal/

Between the censoring, TLOU multiplayer removal, shutting down PS3 AND PS4 servers, and recently figuring out that the Hulu Live that is already bought and paid for does not work on PS4, I am really starting to question Sony and where we are headed for the PS5.

Screw Facebook. This is all due to the Cambridge Analytical fallout anyway isn't it?

I'd need to see the reasoning behind the decision, but it is weird.

Its clear:

No Hulu TV usage on PS4/PS3 = PS Vue

No Facebook usage (owners of Occulus) = PSVR

Oh no, Sony is doomed. Seriously, don't need to go far to find out what is really going on.

From Gamespot:

A spokesperson for Facebook told Kotaku that Facebook integration is expected to return if the company can come to terms with Sony on a new contract.

"We're working with Sony to finalize an updated contract designed to improve the Facebook integration on PlayStation," Sony said. "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."

Sony wants to position themselves as streamer/content creator friendly yet does the opposite.

I am guessing the blame is more towards facebook as they did lose a court case regarding illegal sharing of information.

Since I stop using FB many years ago (and I couldn't be more happier too) before PS4 came into the fray, I always use Twitter and go from their with pics and stuff like that.

Might as well go to Twitter if you haven't already.

If I posted any of my gaming crap on Facebook, half my friends would unfriend me. No one cares about that stuff...unless you are like 12 or something.

I guess there has been an update, Sony and Facebook had failed to come to new negotiations on contracts and are working on a new one to get FB back on the PS4. I think it had something to do with FB sharing information.

@i_p_daily: Because unlike you, I (mostly) add to the conversation.

seriously though, do you actually care about posting to Facebook or just arguing for fun? Lol

I can't figure out why people like this to begin with

Well if you add to the conversation mostly then so do I.

If the OP is unhappy about this he has every right to make a thread about it, just as you have every right to post in it. Maybe you should add to the conversation as you have a PS4 and can offer an opinion instead of whinging, just a thought.

Just because you can't figure why people like it doesn't mean its bad, you're just coming across as a cranky old bugger lol.

As for Facebook, well I've never been on Facebook as I don't see the appeal of it, or any social media (other than gaming ones) but remember more options are better than less.

Until Facebook is properly public and regulated........no company should allow integration and data sharing with the platform.

As I have said many times on this board, I am a tech consultant for the military and Facebook is almost always my number 1 warning.

It isnt allowed in ANY secure facility computers for that reason.

Smart move by Sony.

Blame Facebook here. They have so many security holes that they KNOW about but refuse to fix because it allows them to make money through data sharing and the many apps

As of when did this take place? I just posted something on FB like 2 or 3 days ago.

Answered my own question by clicking on the link.. The 7th was the last day huh? Crazy I might have posted something on the last day and not even known it was the last day.. lol. I hadn't posted something before that in a LONG time.

It sounds like they simply don't want to offer anything they could charge for later. No more value-added features in addition to the basic role of a video game console.

I wager they are preparing people for the PS5, which will probably monetize every little thing or, alternatively, will only allow Sony applications. Prepare for Sony music, Sony movie streaming, Sony video game streaming, Sony social media app.

Console manufacturers and video game publishers are trying to steal away every aspect of control, ownership, or openness on their respective products.

Laugh if you want, but you all would be better off boycotting consoles and going to PC. It will soon be the only open, pro-consumer platform left.

Speaking of integration, how is it that the consoles still don't have Discord integration? Discord is a million times better than any of the chat/party systems on consoles and even in the PC world, so why haven't they embraced it?

I know that you can "connect" xbox and discord, but why don't they have a discord app for Xbox yet? Sure, we can see them playing on their Xbox, but why can't we chat with them while on their Xbox?
