After some testing with the new accounts, if our existing members would like to add social authentication to their accounts, I can look at adding that
functionality. The biggest advantage is being able to log into ATS with one-click.
NOTE: for those considering social authentication - we only use the oAuth authentication tokens to confirm identity, we don't use any other data from
whichever social network you select.
