Facebook replacement for saves should be considered

With all the negative association with Facebook and the announcement of an FTC investigation into there wrongdoing, people are wanting to jump ship on Facebook (even CEO Elon Musk did for SpaceX and Tesla). I think a replacement for saves should be addressed in a future update. At this point, all eggs are in one basket and should the $90 billion loss continue to add up for Facebook, what will happen to this game and the saves we all have should there service stop working properly.

    Isn't there an option to save to Google in the menu?

    THIS.

    I only still have facebook because I cant save this game otherwise. Very frustrating.

    Same here. I stopped using the book of faces years ago, and had been about to delete my account when I started playing MPQ.

    +1. I would love to delete my Facebook.  I can't just now, because I need it for my position at work (I maintain my agency's social media accounts), but that won't always be the case and I don't like having so much personal data available to advertisers and creeps just to save video games.

    This game is the ONLY reason my empty shell of a Facebook account exists. It's the ONLY reason I created a Facebook account in the first place. I would love to rid myself of Facebook entirely, even if it meant the loss of rewards sharing between friends (which is a barely noticeable trickle anyway).

    I get that it's much more difficult to back-up games across multiple platforms, but they all have that built-in ability now (Google, Apple, Steam).

    Idk why you cant save the data to icloud. Makes no sense

    Are we seeing different things here? I can see the option to backup to Google.

    Just make a fake Fakebook account. That is probably just as damaging to Zuk & the Fakesters as deleting your account. 

    You do NOT need the Fakebook app on your phone in order to use MPQ game-save (or any other game-save for that matter).

    Create your fake Fakebook account using a web browser. Put a cartoon pic in you profile, maybe log in once a year. Probably a good idea to clear all your browser’s cookies after contaminating it by touching the FB site. Also a good idea to use browser plugins to block social media buttons. This is how they track people who don’t even have accounts.

    No google backup on iOS.

    The Google backup doesn't allow switching devices. I'm probably a rare case, but I also play on both Android and iOS, so platform-specific save options would be of limited use.

    Requiring a Facebook account facilitates people creating fake FB accounts and adding 5,000 "Friends" to take advantage of the "Share rewards" mechanism.

    Better would be a proper cloud/server-side back-up so people switching platforms or who play on both an Android phone and an Ipad would not be disadvantaged.

    Also as a suggestion, scrap the Share to FB mechanism, and have the game pick 3 active Alliance members (active, as in played within the past 5-7 days) to share the rewards with.

    I don't have 5000 randoms on my mpq facebook account but it is over a thousand. Would not mind getting rid of it if they implement Alliance sharing instead. Why limit it at 3 though and not the full 20?
