UK Consumers Prefer Social Login to Create A New Account June 6, 2012 by Gina Rau registration, social login To succeed in today’s digital world, organisations must continue to address the challenges and frustrations of online consumers. Particularly if they want to increase their customer base. A growing annoyance voiced by consumers is the online registration form. Often times it’s the gateway to set up an account at a commerce site, required in order to leave a comment, or critical to engage in a site’s community. The reality is that these registration forms are a huge obstacle for visitors to your site.
