You mean instead of building their own social network infrastructure? I would much rather the app remain focused on driving than social networking.

FB is an option, not a compulsion to use Waze.

If its an option, how come I can't add friends without using facebook, which is why I am here, to find out how to add friends without using facebook. the world doesn't need to see what I do with my friends, the purpose of WAZE was for traffic and traffic comunity, not to be facebook slaves, or even let facebook see, hear, or know, anything about my WAZE activities. Its sad WAZE sold out to facebook.[/quote]

Again, Facebook integration is optional. There is nothing important you can't do without Facebook. You won't see the scoreboard for Facebook, but still see the country scoreboard. You can share with your friends because sharing is done via SMS and email. You can't see your friend list, but there's not much one can do there at the moment. The point is that at the current implementation there ain't much functionality one loose without Facebook active. ;)

I would also love to have this functionality. I have several friends that have waze but don't have facebook. There no way to see them on my map or chat between each other and count toward the Friends reward for points on waze.

Another anti-Facebook vote.

I know we can use Waze without Facebook, just as we can also use other competing mapping solutions. I guess Waze has decided they would rather lose users to competitors than change this policy. So be it. Sad but not surprising consequence of what, IMHO, is an ill-advised, short sighted stance.

Best regards.

Friends without FaceBook

I've been connected to Facebook from day one and have never had my location posted unless I chose to do so, and even then, it only gave a city and state.

Two and half years later and still the requirement for Facebook. As a professional I killed my FB account long ago. Too many ways for your reputation to be screwed by FB.
I understand the nature of Waze development model, but this is a pretty starightforward requirement. Let me select Waze users I'd like to be my friends and who then can then see my location. I they want to let me see them, they select me as a friend. End of requirement.
I can only imagine the amount of time that went into writing the FB interface for Waze, and goes into maintaining it.
