    Question Should I make a custom login or a Facebook login

    So I've been thinking about whether I should make a personal sign in for my website or use Facebook's login and I'm kind of curious to see what people have to say. I would love to hear any story related to this!

    My website is a game website, so people can play games online.

    I would create your own. Mainly because you will be excluding people who do not have Fb.

    Then again I am admittedly biased and absolutely despise Fb.

    Hahaha, have you ever used a Facebook login system before on your website(s)?

    No because I do not really see any benefit from it

    Both. It wasn't an option on the poll.

    Also, OP, don't be a dick.

    I don't think he was being a dick. Am I missing something?

    custom login and Facebook login both can be done. Let users choose their way.

    I have. The minor issue with them is they're hard to configure. IIRC, and it's been years since I've worked with one, they use oAuth v.1.0 to generate access tokens and handle permissions.

    The major issue is the major issue that I have with Facebook...it's invasive. Extremely invasive. Facebook gathers way more data than it needs to on who uses apps and how. Games are actually a really good example...there are many games that can be played online for free without using Facebook, but the userbase generally can't be bothered to look.

    That's why I use Facebook when I absolutely must and no more. I trust it about as far as as I could throw Bigfoot.

    Maybe I'm just being too sensitive, but it came off a little dickish to me.

    I don't think that was the OP's intention either. It was a valid response to Vapr_Arts' comment about despising FB...which was valid in turn.

    No harm, no foul here.
