    Can someone explain the difference between signing in (to HubPages) normally and signing in with facebook? I've just signed in with facebook and see no difference at all.

      It just saves time. I haven't used it here but on other sites you get logged in automatically if you are already logged into Facebook.

        OK, thanks smile  I was wondering if it automatically posted activity here onto facebook. Glad it doesn't!

    has anyone else ever wondered why different sites would allow cross log-ins on different sites that are not necessarily affiliated or owned under one umbrella.It seems crazy that no info would be transferred to the other company. Maybe the VC's of Hubpages are bondholders in Facebook. Who knows. I realize YouTube allows sign in via Google but they are all under one umbrella.

      Hundreds of sites allow signin via Facebook now, without any affiliation.

      It works similar to Paypal, in that the secondary site can't see your details (unless of course you add your details on the secondary site.)
