    I personally don't really like connecting my Facebook account to games...i would prefer to use my e-mail which i think is safer and a bit more private.
    There have been games which began using Facebook and after some time you could no longer play them there (or there was no point in playing them on FB) and i was unable to connect them to my e-mail (technical issues of the company). Anything similar happened to you?

    I don't like connecting my Facebook account to games because I'm worried about security and other matters. For example, if your Facebook account somehow gets hacked, some of your game accounts may pretty much gets hacked depending on how game companies treat linking games with Facebook, but Facebook does do a pretty good job with their security. I'm also worried about if my Facebook account gets suspended for any reason, because that might cause some issues with playing games.

    Despite that, I do use my Facebook account for certain games though, usually games that I have no problem losing my progress on or games that I play with my Facebook friends on most often.

    Excellent point. Sometimes I like a bit of privacy, but I usually don't have a problem connecting my Facebook account to games, if I play those games mostly with real-life friends. I don't like using my Facebook account on games, if I'm playing against anonymous players.

    Never with my personal.

    I just make a second fb account and link games to that. It's easy to switch over anyways.

    Don't have one so FB isn't an issue for me. Google however... I hate how everything requires linking to Google Account on mobile, games then take your real name an stuff too which is silly. What can you do though, accept it or don't play :/

    Honestly, I think privacy is already lost to other compromises that the log in decision becomes kinda moot. Still smart to be careful though.

    True google acc is required for everything on mobiles.... you cant download anything from the playstore without one and i dont think many would risk external unreliable sources.... :/
