Yes, lets have a removal of Facebook. Or at the very least more options, I really dont care for Facebook Waze is a great app and should have its own friends data base...!

I am against waze using any portion of facebook. Just add a waze only database, it is easy enough. It is not like I, or my friend drivers, will be using at the same time. Also, I don't like giving my location to facebook wall. :?

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.

Just get your programmers moving on getting Waze up to being a standalone program without piggybacking off Facebook for the "friends" feature. That's one aspect of Waze I (along with a lot of others) do not like. Is this even in the works?

Interesting thought. Facebook is NOT required. Whatever gave you that idea?

Had I known this was a Facebook required app I would have never downloaded and installed it. It's too bad because this is a great idea with a lot of potential. I have friends that do not have FB and that makes this app useless for all the "friend" features. I will be uninstalling this app and going back to google latitude. Such a shame, good idea, poor execution.

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.
