When deciding which social login buttons to implement, it's important to understand three key points:
- Each social network provides access to a different set of social datapoints
- Each social datapoint requires unique permissions
- User habits vary greatly from social media platform to social media platform
For example, a user connecting with their Facebook is likely to share information related to interests, hobbies, and favorite products and brands; whereas a user connecting with their LinkedIn account is more likely to share information about their professional and educational background. In order to gain permission to access each datapoint your social network application must be configured appropriately.
*Special permission required
