Worth noting having multiple personal Facebook accounts is against Community Standards and can get your account(s) banned https://www.facebook.com/help/975828035803295

Facebook earns 99% of it's revenue from ads. Targeted ads more than any other kind. It's probably not worth trying to avoid Facebook integration and ad-related content, they're going to monetize the way they know how.

Facebook algorithms have become advanced enough that if you don't have an account with them, you will still have a me-shaped hole in their data graph based off what few bits of data matching they can still perform anonymously as well as based on your interactions on social media. It's patently disturbing really.

I assumed that was a given. Why would you log in via Facebook? Do you even read the TOS? Don’t know why people are surprised.

(You don’t need to make a separate Facebook account to use oculus. A Facebook account isn’t required at all.)

I wouldn't buy anything Oculus makes, specifically because of the FB association. I had an original HTC Vive, and recently upgraded to the Valve Index.

I do have an account with Oculus, however; to play exclusives like Vader Immortal through Revive: https://github.com/LibreVR/Revive
