Re: The case for social logins
I would never use so-called ‘social logins’. If people
want that sort of thing, then by all means have it available
to them, but don’t let’s all have to suffer it to the
exclusion of a proper login. Those of us who abhor social
media do not want to go down the road of copying the likes
of Google and Facebook. The slide of Yahoo Groups into that
sort of thing is exactly why we need a home for our Groups
away from Yahoo Neo in the first place!

- Groups.io bills itself as a "modern" alternative to
Yahoo/Google groups. Social logins would help create
this branding and hence increase the sign up rate.
