What Do You Think Of Social Logins? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week we asked you if you’re using Gmail’s new compose experience. All in all, while many of the voters aren’t completely sure about it yet, it seems that the vast majority decided to go a certain way when it comes to the new compose. Which way do you think it is? Read on to find out.

Out of 459 votes in total, 43% said they’re using the new compose and love it, 29% are using it but are still not sure about it, 21% are not using it and do not intend to until Google forces them, 5% said they’re not using it but actually don’t mind it that much, and only 2% of the voters said they don’t use Gmail. And that’s saying something!

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

So as you can see, while there’s no real consensus as to how good the new compose is, almost 75% of the readers who voted are using it. I guess Google’s doing something right, at least in the way it’s persuading us to try the new feature. Be sure to read last week’s best comment by Julie Smith, who won 150 points for her comment! She doesn’t like the new compose, and she made it very clear why that is.

It started with Facebook logins, and it’s now spread far beyond that. Social logins are everywhere, including right here on MakeUseOf, and they’re as controversial as they are common. While there’s no doubt that social logins are much easier for both the users and the website they log in to, not everyone appreciates the need to use a social account or a Google account to log in to an unrelated website. While most websites, including MakeUseOf, don’t access your personal information and don’t store it, you’re never sure what will happen when dealing with smaller websites. On the one hand, these logins are a great way to log in quickly and effortlessly, and save you from having thousands of accounts and passwords. On the other hand, you might not want to compromise a sensitive account such as Facebook just to log in somewhere. What do you think?

Tell us in the comments why you like or dislike social networks. Specify which networks are OK for social logins, which you don’t like to use, and why.
