PS Vita and PS3 Facebook App Removed Today

In September, 2015, Sony announced that the Facebook application for the PS3, PS Vita, and PSTV would no longer receive support on January 20, 2016.

The application is to be removed in today’s PlayStation 3 system software version 4.78, and the PlayStation Vita/TV’s system software 3.57 updates.

While it seems the Vita is slowly losing application support, there’s nothing of value really lost here. The Facebook application was awful, and I’m sure many never decided to think twice about giving it anther chance. If anything, PlayStation 3 and Vita/PSTV owners can now focus on playing games instead of looking to see how many likes their last status has received.
