Sony ends PS4’s Facebook integration

Sony ends PS4 and Facebook integration

Sony announced today that it will no longer support Facebook integration for its PlayStation 4 as the company took down the ability to link the gaming console to players’ Facebook account.

Sony wrote in a blog today, “Facebook will no longer be offered as a destination to share screenshots, videos, music, trophy details, or links to gameplay broadcasts.”

With the new rules and guidelines in place, you will no longer be able to use your Facebook profile photo as your official PlayStation Network avatar. If you are using it, then sadly you will have to remove the profile pic. “We recommend selecting a new picture for PlayStation friends to identify you,” said the company.

Moreover, the ability to find friends using your Facebook friends list and the share features that let you transfer gameplay videos and screenshots have also been disabled. Players will no longer be able to use either the Friend Finder or Friends List features.

However, this seems to be a temporary change as Kotaku reports that Facebook is working to improve the integration, and Sony has disabled it for a short while as the two companies work out a new contract. “We’re working with Sony to finalize an updated contract designed to improve the Facebook integration on PlayStation,” a Facebook spokesperson told Kotaku. “
