Signing up to websites by logging in with Facebook and Twitter is all the rage right now, but am I the only person who doesn’t like doing it this way? If there’s no option for email signup, I won’t sign up at all.

I doubt that many have a problem with signing up like this, but I just don’t like it.

Email Signup Please!

Listen up – if you own a website which enables users to sign up, please, please, please don’t force them to use Facebook or Twitter to create their account. It’s very frustrating!

I don’t have a problem with the feature overall – it’s definitely a great idea and very convenient for those who don’t mind using it, but I would rather keep it old school and sign up using my email address so please don’t restrict your service to connectors only. I know this is partly for security, but please reconsider.


I don’t really use Facebook all that much, I much prefer Twitter these days and so I’m even less likely to connect using the platform to share my information with a million different websites.

Pretty pointless post, but I hate those sites!

What do you think of sites that require Facebook or Twitter to sign up?
