Social Login: Login with Social Network IDs

May 8th in Social Media, Wordpress Plugins by .

Social sites such as Facebook and Twitter have millions of members. Many of these folks visit your website too. Letting your visitors log on to your website using their social IDs is a smart idea. For starters, it makes the process more convenient for them. It also help your community gain more registered members. Social Login is a WordPress plugin that adds this functionality to your website.

Social Login is developed to increase the level of engagement on your website. It is compatible with some of the most popular social networks including Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and LinkedIn. You are going to need a OneAll account to get started. The plugin adds the social connect feature to your login forms, comments, and even your sidebar. Manual insertion is supported through this call:

(do_action('oa_social_login'))

Social Login is highly customizable. You can define where you want your visitors to go when they are logged in. The plugin can search for existing accounts in your database to match them up with social network ID used by your visitors.

Adding plugins such as Social Login may increase the number of registered members in your community. Besides, it makes commenting on your stories easier for your visitors. It is well worth testing.
