Social media "credentials" for guest access?
Hello to the Group-
Among WLAN vendors and portal provider, the usage of social media login as an acceptable guest network sign-in mechanism is getting more common. I get the appeal for retail/hospitality WLANs that ultimately will Target marketing at you based on these credentials, but I’m not digging it myself for use in higher ed because of the “anyone can come up with a BS social media sign-in” factor. At the same time, to dismiss any system that uses social media means narrowing down your choices for guest access when you’re shopping, and so I wonder…
Are any schools using guest access that is based on social media login? How’s it working out for you, and have you ever regretted the choice?
