Google+ Sign-In tries to beat Facebook Connect by avoiding "social spam"

0. phoneArena 26 Feb 2013, 10:44 posted on

Single sign-in options have been around for a while, but more and more they are being tied to our social networks, meaning instead of just a unified sign-in process, you also have to take into account personal data and sharing. Facebook Connect has been pushing those bounds for a while, but now Google wants to really take on Facebook with Google+ Sign-In which promises to kill "social spam"...

Would you mind at least explaining why you think Google+ is "crap"?

If Google so "Good" then why don't they release Apps for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 or making Apps like YouTube and Google+ to hard for them?

Being "good" does not mean you should do it for free or for a small profit. Let Microsoft get a team together to figure this out. Why would Google make their IP stuffs work for the 4 Windows Phone users out there. Would you spend your time trying to make things easier for your competitors ?

Google is updating Chrome for Windows 8 UI, and since all Google services are web based, they see that as good enough. And, until Windows Phone 8 gets enough users to make a dent in the mobile market, Google doesn't want to spend the resources on the platform. Simple as that.

It's like asking why Microsoft doesn't make apps for bada.
