Social login gets you into the fold, and i supposed to hold your privacy intact.
According to this (sponsored) post on GigaOm, social login is accelerating in adoption.
Social login is clearly on the rise, but how will this evolve to become more valuable for the mobile developers?
Social login alone does not offer enough horsepower for what mobile developers are trying to accomplish today. Granted, most of these implementations of social login are geared towards mobile web integration, making it easy for the user to sign into a website via their mobile device. Which is a good thing in many cases.
What happens if login is not enough? What about including contact directories from those social networks, or security past OAuth, or messaging & calling capabilities etc etc etc. That’s when we need something a bit more powerful, something that supports social login but takes mobile development to the next level with identity federation, peer to peer mobile communications and security past what is provided via social login vendors.
Introducing Open Peer – Rolodex API by Hookflash. A new way to approach social login that will give developers the power to add much more to mobile applications. Adding features like federated identity for login and contact directories (eg. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Enterprise Directories via the Hookflash OAuth API), P2P messaging, P2P voice and video calling and a much higher level of security across the board.
Developers can leverage Open Peer and the Rolodex API today, sign up at Hookflash to find out more!
