Social Login & Social Sharing by Janrain

Janrain social login increases site registrations and generates referral traffic to your site by allowing users to easily register and login via an existing social network or email ID. Janrain social sharing allows users to publish their comments or activities from your site to multiple social networks simultaneously.

Social Login:

Give your visitors the option to sign-in to your site with their existing social network such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo!, LinkedIn, Windows Live, MySpace, AOL and others (20+ Supported Networks).

Social Login Display Options:

  1. Social login buttons for standard WordPress registration screen
  2. Social login buttons for comments
  3. Social login buttons within Widgets
  4. Show social provider photo as avatar
  5. Shortcodes for customized integrations.
  6. Provider selection viewable by admin in user list.

Collects Email Address:

Prompts users to enter an email address if the provider used for login does not pass a verified email address (WordPress Requirement). Expert option to collect placeholder emails to bypass this.

Legacy Account Mapping:

If your user has an existing account with your site, Janrain Engage will map profile data received at login with the existing account (via verfiedEmail only).

Social Sharing:

A customizable widget for your users to share your articles to multiple social networks simultaneously. Users can select up to four social communities such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Yahoo for sharing. On average this will generate 13 referral clicks back to your site for each article that is shared.

Social Sharing Display Options

  1. Social share buttons at beginning or end of posts
  2. Social share buttons on each comment
  3. Share button customization

Social Provider Comment Icons:

Each comment from a user signed in through a social provider gets an icon to the provider that links to their profile page for that provider.

Connect a provider to an existing account:

Users can connect a provider to their account through the profile page or the widget. They can also change the provider in the profile page.

Automatic user registration:

Register new users automatically when they want to share something from your site. This optional feature lowers the barrier for new user registration.
