PlayStation Network’s recent update to the PS4 firmware slightly changed the way trophies and activities are posted to Facebook by Sony’s next-generation PS4 console. It may seem like your PS4 trophies and gaming activity is no longer posting to Facebook. In fact, it actually is.
You can find it by clicking going to your profile, clicking “Activity Log” (at the top right hand side next to “Update Info”) and finding the event – it will be there with the privacy setting you set up when you linked your FB to your PS4. Now, click the gear next to it (which may look like a pen depending on your settings) and then switch from “Allowed on Timeline” to “Shown on Timeline”. Voila, now you’ve got this event right on your Facebook profile.
There’s no public statement currently available as to why this change occured, but we’d bet it has something to do with the PS4 posting a bit too often for FB’s liking. With a little bit of extra work you’ll still be able to keep the PS4 love going, you’ll just have to regulate it yourself for the time being.
I've been trying to figure this out for a few days now. Only thing I hate is that when you allow it on your facebook timeline...it doesnt go to the news feed at all.... Oh well... I know the posting when a game was played is annoying but I liked the trophies making its way onto the news feed like the PS3 did....
At least now I know it's not just me and that my friends it is still posting for is cause they must not have the update...
Thanks for the info and I hope they re add at least the trophies...
That's so stupid! I agree it's kind of lame that it doesn't group post your trophies like the PS3 does...seems that was a bassakwards move on Sony's part. Hopefully they fix this in the immediate future. Shouldn't have to come on here and manually do it every time!!!
Also, I noticed if you earn multiple trophy, PS4 post it separately, in PS3, they are all clump in 1 post.
Hey guys. Functionality between FB and the PS4 are different than that of the PS3. You can see in this article here: https://support.us.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5216
- Your trophies and played games: These will be synced to FB’s Activity Log. They will not appear in the timeline
- If you "Like" an item or activity: This will not appear on your timeline.
Apologies for any inconvenience. Since the question has been answered this thread will now be locked.
