Basically, if you don't have facebook / twitter features in your game (or games system) these days, you're seen as behind the times.

Even though it adds NOTHING to the experience...

It annoys me, because even though I use Facebook quite a lot, I want Facebook to die, like AOL did for example, so it can be replaced with something better, but with everyone jumping on board the facebook bandwagon, it's not going to happen any time soon.

After my Sister harassed me for YEARS I tried it. Hardly used it, shut it down. Don't miss it. In fact, I'm quite happy knowing it's not there anymore.

If your friends are on steam surely you would have them on it already and not need to do the facebook thing. I do use facebook, but it is purely a news feed. If I want to talk to someone i'll use my phone. I might link them just incase I have missed anyone I guess.

I'd already "added" a few steam friends to my Facebook friends (mainly for baby pics) prior to this...mostly, however, I'd like to keep the 2 worlds separate

I really don't want to publicise my gaming.

If I wanted to do that I would have thrown up my real name as my game name.

Nope really really DONT want to do that.

Others may be happy about it, but I like my privacy (or the illusion that I have such), and don't want to shout from the rooftops what I am doing and when.

Agreed. My gaming life is my gaming life and my social life is my social life. They're two completely separate entities. None of my friends in 'real life' game. While the average age of gamers is in excess of 30, there are many people that consider gaming as something you grow out of when you become an adult. I don't want to have to justify my 4 hour stint in a virtual plane or virtual battlefield. I do it for my own enjoyment and relaxation.

Those friendships I have developed over gaming are more than entitled to see what I am doing (in case they want to join in or invite me to play with them) within the Steam friends tab - and I actually quite like that.
