    Facebook login feature would help hubbers. They would not need to type hubpages username and password each time they come to this site. This feature would also be helpful to increase the hubpages members, as so many peoples would like to sign up with their Facebook account.

    It's a nice idea because many websites have this nowadays. But I don't like the idea that the whole internet is starting to become dependent on just a few login systems...

    I really don't like the idea either. Who's to say facebook won't be completely irrelevant in two years? I don't like the idea of making an account with xxx site tied to yyy site--especially when there are earnings involved.

    I'm not a fan. Facebook has MAJOR privacy issues. I'd write a whole hub about it if the search engines weren't already saturated with complaints about the topic.

      That;s a concern for sure with FB.  I just hit the "remember me" box when I log in for Hubpages and don't have to re-sign in every time.

    If hubpages provides the facility of Facebook login, it is not compulsory for every hubber to login to their hubpages account with Facebook login button. It depends upon hubber that how he want to enter into hubpages! So, Facebook login would be the great concept for those who want to use it to enter into hubpages.

    Furthermore, I feel it's like HubPages approves of what Facebook has been doing with users' privacy.

    Sorry Mel... I am against the idea too. I do have a fb account, but would much rather have to continue going to the HP login page.
