(Discussion) Should Sims Free Play use another medium other than Facebook?

Post by Ryuzakiryuuga » 28 Apr 2018, 10:56

With the current situation that is happening to Facebook right now? I'm sure you guys are up to date with news circulating currently.

Me personally, I've always wanted to delete my Facebook as I feel it's getting a bit too personal for me. Obtrusive, I may say.

So I think Sims FP should open for more way to save your data other than Facebook and GC.

What do you think?

You can always create a separate account just for games. That is what I have. But they could have at least one other option :)

I don’t do facebook and won’t. Fortunately I’ve still got neighbors in my old game center account and will keep that as long as I can. I don’t go visiting much but like the option. If it goes away then that’s that for that.

I’ve never used FB for neighbours in the game either. I could never be bothered with a separate account just for the game and didn’t want strangers (albeit it some lovely ones!) on my personal FB account. I too have neighbours through GC account and it’s a real shame that’s no longer an option to add new friends.

I deleted my real Facebook account years ago. I've got a couple fake ones for my games and went through all the privacy and other settings to turn off whatever I possibly could. I don't trust Facebook with any personal information and wished that games stopped using them. But most likely they get a kickback from Facebook.

Just remember anytime something is free, you're the product.

I think it’s unlikely, but maybe the bad press facebook has been getting lately will be an impetus for developers to find another option.

I refuse to use FB for games and thanks to Game Center being defunct I no longer can get SP by visiting neighbors because it’s useless since I have so few neighbors and they don’t have much of what I need to complete the tasks.

FM needs to jump all over Apple until they get Game Center back up and running again so that there is an alternative to FB.
