Single slide lesson: Third party login


This slide looks at the information a user provides when logging into an account using a third party like Facebook or Twitter. It discusses the ways this benefits all three parties – the user, the site being logged into and the third party that verifies the user’s identity. In return, the user gives up some privacy and is in danger of creating a “filter bubble,” where he or she only sees homogeneous information.
