    Why not? if you want to use catapult make a facebook account just so that you can use it. Same way I don't use my twitter but I still have one just in case I win tickets in free giveaways. Just don't update or post anything on facebook or even add friends. No big deal

    Well, I don't have facebook, because I wasn't allowed to and now, because I don't want one. I also agree with waheguru in that there should be more methods. However, I think one of the reasons they chose fb is because it's harder to just be anonymous and have no link to who you are. I don't know. There are a bunch of benefits to them using it on Fb is just bites for people who want to try out Catapult and can't, because of it.

    Making a fake account is dumb. It's still worthless. Fb (to me) would be a waste of time and energy. I understand the goal of it being to connect people, but it's just a gaming, time wasting, energy drain. Where people can get easily offended, stalked and trolled. Just not worth it. There are other mediums to use. I do understand OS/catapult using fb because there are many advantages but, you're right for as many people that aren't allowed to/ don't want to use fb it isn't "fair". Kids can use OS because it's and educational site. They can't necessarily use Facebook. I don't know. Just my random babbling. Maybe google+ could be a possible alternative/addition for future updates?

    You only waste time in facebook if you allow it to waste your time. Don't play games or anything just make the account for catapult that's what I'm saying. I really don't understand what the big deal is.

    Hi everyone, so I definitely want to address a lot of the issues brought up here. First of all, this is the very first version of Catapult - meaning we've made it as simple and basic as possible, without all the features we'd *like* to have in the future. So, for now we are relying solely on Facebook, but we do plan to expand and open that up in the future. So, hang in there and we'll be adding other methods in the future, thanks! In terms of the US only issue - that was *not* part of our plan. We actually just realized that recently, and are frantically researching a workaround. The issue is with the payment processing providers, and the difficulties involved with international payments. I can promise you that Catapult will be usable to users ANYWHERE in the near future. This was what we've always planned, and do apologize to those users (@saifoo.khan for example) who haven't been able to use the service due to this issue. Cheers everyone, much appreciated!
