    Social Login best practices

    I need to figure out how to allow our site visitors the option of logging in via social networks (LinkedIn and Twitter in partcular). The goto solution seems to be the DotNetOpenAuth library, and I see there's an existing but not recently updated package using it.

    Anyone have tips or samples from implementing this?

    Also, more specifically, is it necessary to actually create a local account in the asp.net membership system once authenticated by the social network theu openid, or is there a way to mark a session as authenticated programmatically? I'd rather not create duplicate records but it might be the only way, since I rely on group membership for access to some site content & features.

    Let me know how you solved this problem, otherwise I'll be diving in and doing it myself.

    Thanks,
    - Andrew

    I'll second this to see if there is anything existing out there that someone wants to share?

    I'll third that - even some high-level general advice would be great!

    Fourth it! I know this is an old post, but I'm looking to do this for the members section and not sure what the best approach would be.

    Roland - Shannon took us through 7.3 which has an Identity provider which you could make use of, check out his CG15 presentation for more info.
