Hello there! Great question! At the current moment, a Facebook account linked to your Oculus account is required in order to get functionality out of the Quest 2. Previous generations such as the Quest 1, Rift, and Rift S are going to be able to use an Oculus account without a Facebook account until January of 2023. Not having a Facebook account linked to your Oculus account will prevent you from accessing updated features as well as social content. Follow the link here: https://ocul.us/3Jics8i to find out more about Facebook account requirements and other Facebook/Oculus account information. We hope this helps, best wishes!
