Now supported: sign in via Facebook or Twitter

Posted by Chris Merkord , in New Features 18 April 2013 · 7,372 views

Now supported: sign in via Facebook or Twitter If any of you are like me, you have too many usernames and passwords to remember. To make it easier for existing users to sign in, or for new users to create an account, we are providing a new feature on the site. You can now sign in using your Facebook or Twitter account. In addition to signing in, associating your account with a social media account also lets you share content on those other sites with a single click.

Its super-simple and takes only a few seconds to do. To start, just click one of the two icons at the top of the page:

Alternatively, click "Sign in" and click one of the two tabs at the top of the sign in box:

New members can also click "Create Account" and then click on the Facebook or Twitter tabs on the account creation page.

If you click Twitter, for example, you will be asked to sign in to Twitter (this step is skipped if you are already signed in to Twitter on your computer):

After entering your Twitter or Facebook username and password, you will be asked if you want to create a new account on the Ornithology Exchange, or associate your Twitter or Facebook account with an existing Ornithology Exchange account. Choose the appropriate option.

If that's still not enough options ways to do it, you can also sign in, click on your name and select "My Profile", then click "Edit Profile", then click the "Mange Facebook" or "Manage Twitter".

Regardless of the method you choose, all get you to the same end point: you can now sign in with your Facebook or Twitter account.

Don't worry, despite the alarming messages that the Ornithology Exchange app for each social website can view some of your content, we actually don't do anything other than let you sign in, and your Facebook and Twitter passwords are completely private (we couldn't see them if we wanted to).

Sometime in the next year (hopefully in the next few months) the company that provides the software running our site will put out authentication methods for LinkedIn and Google account holders also, giving you even more options.

Please let me know if you have any trouble using these alternative sign-in methods. Feel free to "Like" this blog post if you think this is a good idea. I want to get a better handle on how many people will use this feature.
