Sony Interactive Entertainment has removed Facebook integration from the PlayStation 4, which means that one can not share screenshots and trophies with Facebook friends from a console now.

“PlayStation 4’s share features will remain the same, except Facebook will no longer be offered as a destination to share screenshots, videos, music, or links to gameplay broadcasts,” the company said in a blog post detailing the changes on Monday.

The removal of Facebook integration also means that PS4 users won’t be able to find PlayStation Network friends via their Facebook accounts.

However, the Nintendo Switch still has Facebook integration. (IANS)
