Which identities people use to sign in to WeCanDo.BIZ

It’s been around six weeks now since we launched WeCanDo.BIZ Access, enabling people to sign straight in to our site using an existing third party identity they have, rather than needing to register with us from scratch.  It’s been very well received and registrations are up more than 100%!

We’re big supporters of so-called Shared Identities, so we watch with interest which existing identities people prefer to use to sign in with.

The chart below shows the distribution of providers people NOT using their WeCanDo.BIZ specific identity are signing in with (this is 226 people as of right now):

Consistent with the results of the survey we ran just before this went live, most people prefer to sign in with their Twitter identity — a very clear winner!

This is expecially interesting as Twitter OAuth is one of the newest syd shared signin initiatives and in most people’s minds comes way behind OpenID and Faceboo Connect — cerainly in terms of coverage it receives.

We;ll be keeping a keen eye on how this distribution develops over time.

Your comments always welcomed.
