Setup Problems with Windows 10 Nokia Phone

I recently bought a Lumia 950 XL Phone, and aside from discovering Microsoft is no longer supporting Windows 10 phones, I am having problems setting up functions like Facebook, which does not seem to recognize my 10 year account on this phone. I am also wondering just how deeply the non support will affect this phone, will I be able to communicate with others through email and messaging? I remember when the windows XP OS was abandoned, but I know of people who are using it successfully to this day! So is the situation similar with this phone as well?

The phone will still work fine on a basic smartphone level. You just won't have any major first-party non-MS apps available or available for much longer. If you are okay with that then it will be fine. What struck me was how strange it was to use a phone whose Store had no proper social media apps available. It was actually quite refreshing in one way, but also a tragic reminder of how far the platform has sadly fallen too.
