Joining or signing into Think Atheist is about to get a lot easier.
We're excited to announce that we'll be
rolling out Social Sign-In today
, which allows our members to sign up or sign in to Think Atheist via Facebook,
Google or Yahoo.
Previously, signing up for Think Atheist required entering an email address, choosing a password and filling in some basic information. Now, all that can be done with just a couple of clicks. When potential members join Think Atheist using Facebook, Google or Yahoo, they will not need to create an additional password to keep track of.
Their name and email will also be automatically retrieved, without needing to type it in. Better yet, if a member signs up with Facebook, their birthdate, gender, profile photo and (later this month) location will be pulled as well, if the network has added those profile
We have made signing in to Think Atheist incredibly simple too. Previously, members needed to first click the "Sign In" link, then type in their email address and password on the following page and click "Sign In" again.
Now, all it
takes is a click. On the Sign Up/Sign In box in the top-right corner of Think Atheist, members will now see an icon for each service.
If a signed-out member clicks on the icon of the service they used to
join, they'll be signed in right away — no extra steps or clicks needed. It's hard to get easier than that.
Enjoy and please let me know if you have any problems! :]
PS Twitter is next on the sign up list. I will update that here once that is ready to launch.
