Add friends without facebook
Why am I forced to use facebook in order to add friends to Waze?? I don't use facebook, 75% of the world's population does not use facebook at all (and more with every day). Is keeping fb afloat Waze's most important purpose?
Anyway, I don't want facebook friends on Waze, I want Waze friends on Waze and facebook friends on facebook, don't try to mix a driving app with a social network.
This is a shame on Waze!!! I do not want to give FB any access to my contacts and vice versa. Are there any other apps that can do what we loved about Waze?? Please share other better options if anyone know of any.
Agree FB to see friends is terrible
Is this ever going to change? Hard to believe that Google, who owns Waze, is supporting FB. Maybe because RIP Google ±. Cmon Google, get your stuff together.
Waze friends ONLY from facebook?!!!!
This is like saying you are only allowed to invite your work colleagues to your bachelor party!!!
here would be no point in a "suggestion box" if you don't hear what your users want Waze...
Hoping to hear some good news on this soon!

I agree. ! ! I just want select friends on Waze. It is a security issue

It is ridiculous a Google application to use Facebook authentication instead of Google authentication!

LDAP, XMPP PubSub are both great open protocols to accomplish this.
Nasty waste, nasty Facebook. Deleting the app
It’s insulting and manipulative to force your faithful users to connect to a specific social media platform in order to use one of the major features of your app. Change this or I will join 1000s of others and move to the competition.
I’m not understanding why Waze won’t respond to all these comments. I just started using waze but I won’t anymore unless they change this nonsense about having to use Facebook.
Screw Google, the real reason they changed this is for ADVERTISING dollars plain and simple. Facebook has the most advanced spying algorithms to make a nice personal profile of you and bombard you with advertisements. that's the real money people. As of today after 3 years app is getting uninstalled and all of my friends and family I have gotten to use it are going to erase it too.
I do not use FB because I feel it invades my privacy. Why would I want hundreds of people to be able to track where I am every time I use the app? It should be able to be used with a small amount of friends who I trust and want to know where I am. Please fix this. FB isn't the answer.
Don’t want to link Facebook to waze. Simply want to be able to navigate to a friends house via the app. I can do it in google maps, so why no waze. Please fux
Got a new phone, tried using restore password to no avail. Waze basically forced me to create a new account, through Facebook. Now I have lost the ability to connect to any of my phone contacts, plus I lost 3 years worth of my user account. This is ridiculous - allow us to use our phone contacts to find friends. I am NOT connecting my driving habits to Facebook for reasons that should surprise no rational software design team!

not using facebook, give people options..
facebook is an abomination. I do not use it. Get Waze to access my contacts without FB
Non sense such linking between two differentiated services.
Nevertheless, give the chance those to link whatever they want.
Add me in as someone who doesn't use Facebook and wants to add contacts. For some reason, only 3 of my contacts are there, and I am unable to add more. I have to share my ETA via text message.

I don't understand it, because waze is a Google company. Why not allow people to import Google Contacts?
I completely agree with any one here and i do not understand why you don't listen waze team.
How come only Facebook login and no Google login in app. Why only Facebook contacts not waze contacts. I would like to add few real contacts not hundred imaginary ones. How about if we don't have it don't use FB. Are they paying you or you don't our contacts?
Please take measures or explain yourself.
We deserve that!
