PS4 loses feature that set it apart from Xbox One on social networks

Starting today, PlayStation 4 will no longer support Facebook integration. This means you can't share your screenshots and trophies with your Facebook friends from your console, plus some other limitations that, although minor, are annoying. This feature set it apart from Xbox One on social networks.

As Sony points out in your article "Facebook will no longer be offered as a destination for sharing screenshots, videos, music, trophy details or links to game streams." You also will not be able to link your Facebook friends on your PS4 account. If you are using a Facebook photo as your profile, you will need to change this as well.

The website VG247 points out that this may be related to changes made by Facebook to data sharing following the Cambridge Analytica scandal. In a July post, Facebook wrote that “immediately” would be terminating PlayStation's “access to friend data”. Maybe “immediately” is… now?

As for Xbox One, Microsoft has integration with Twitter, but Facebook has never joined that much, but it's not hard to do that on the green console. It's even possible using even smartphone apps on the Xbox, but the best way to consider using Xbox DVR.
