Why?

When you sign up for a new website, do you use the convenient "Connect with Facebook" option? Or do you just make an email & password account?

In this post we take a look at signups for our previous startup and conduct a "man on the street" survey to see how people feel about Facebook Connect.

  • low learning curve
  • it comes with a decent object mapper for Java

It's a great service considering how new it is, but it definitely still has some rough edges that make some things harder than we expected.
