    I spent a lot of time trying to add Facebook integration to my iOS App, but with all the commotion about privacy putting Facebook on the grill, I'm wondering if it's still worth trying to do it.
    • Another reason is that Apple is removing Facebook (and Twitter) integration in iOS 12.
    • And one more reason is that (and I may be wrong) I have sensed that many people have lost their trust on Facebook.

    What do you think?:
    • Should I put any more efforts in trying to do it?
    • Should I remove the Facebook icon from my app? (It's purpose it to let people post their scores or share the app with their friends).

    Comes down to a simple question - do you want to? Is it worth your time, or could that time be spent implementing other features?

    From personal experience, no one I know is posting high scores or sharing the app with friends thru Facebook. Messages and Twitter are more common use cases for what you described IMO.
