And just like that, the PlayStation 4's integration of Facebook is being removed starting today (that's the 7th October 2019, for those of you reading this in the future). Sony's official support page on the matter doesn't give a clear reason for the removal, but it does offer a breakdown of what this means for users.
Basically, you'll no longer be able to upload shares (videos, screenshots, links to gameplay broadcasts) or Trophy information to Facebook -- functionality that's been in place since the PS4 launched. Removal of Facebook integration also means that linking your PlayStation Network account to your Facebook account isn't possible, so details like profile pictures imported from Facebook, and various friends list features are gone.
It's certainly a sudden removal, but Sony seems keen on overhauling PlayStation at multiple levels ahead of the PS5's release next year.
