Facebook Login Integrated
There are so many websites out there vying for registrations that many people choose not to register with some websites because they don't want to have to remember yet another username and password. Some just don't want the hassle of registering and confirming their email address, while others just don't want to have multiple accounts across the web. Well, late June 21, we decided to do something about that here at OMGN.
You can now login to OMGN using your Facebook account. Utilizing Facebook's authentication methods, we can connect your Facebook account to OMGN via Facebook's login process. Once you're logged in to Facebook and you've allowed OMGN access to your Facebook account (standard stuff, plus your email address), OMGN will auto-attach a local OMGN account to your Facebook login so you can use all of the registered user functionality here on the site.
This means you don't have to be bothered to register locally at OMGN or confirm your email address. Additionally, if you're already logged in to Facebook when you visit OMGN, you won't even have to submit any login form -- we'll automatically attach to your existing Facebook login. And as a bonus, if you've already got a registered OMGN account with the same email address listed on it as your Facebook account, we'll link the two so you won't have double accounts.
We're planning on rolling out additional social network support for websites like Twitter. We're also planning on making the login process easier by adding Ajax overlays to all login-required areas, so you don't have to navigate to the login page then backtrack to the page you were at. Stay tuned as we continually try to make your OMGN experience better, easier, and smoother!
