What are social logins?
Social logins make it easier for your members to sign in and access their SilkStart accounts. SilkStart can allow your members to log in using their Facebook or Twitter account.
Many people now have accounts on so many different websites that remembering the username and password for any one site can be a challenge. If your members sign into their SilkStart accounts every day or week, they probably know their credentials - but if they only sign in once or twice a year, they may not know that information.
Many people use their social media accounts daily though, so even if they don't remember their SilkStart information, they probably know their Facebook or Twitter credentials. Allowing members to log in to your site using their social media account information makes it easier for them to log in quickly every time they visit your site.
How does it work?
- When a member registers, they can choose to link their member account to a social media account. They can also update this information at any time from the Social tab on their User Profile page.
- When that person signs in to your member site, they will be able to use the credentials from that social media account.
- SilkStart records that person's username, but doesn't keep any password information. The member can decide if they want to allow SilkStart to post content to their social media account.
How to set up social logins
Currently, social logins are an option that can be added to your site by the SilkStart support team. If you are interested in adding social logins to your site, contact your Account Manager to begin.
