For Facebook, developers who have implemented Facebook Login in their apps have seen dramatic increases in the number of people logging into their apps, higher levels of engagement, and continuing increases in the number of people using Facebook Login.

Changes log
Issue message "Empty password not allowed." when an account already exists with the same email

Issue message "uncaught exception: gapi.auth2.ExternallyVisibleError: Missing required parameter 'client_id'" when ID client Google is not filled
Improved certificate file management for ssl requests

Issue removing the socialnetworks directory in layouts when uninstalling

Issue message "SSL CA bundle not found" when signing in with a Google Account due the Joomla SSL file has changed directory since version 3.8.0

Now the extension allows the link between a Facebook or Google account when a user is already present in the database of Joomla users (same email address)
The module logout form now allows to view and manage links with social networks

Forbid users registration if it is not allowed in com_users settings. Thanks to Björn for his contribution

Deleting the obsolete verified field in the Facebook Graph API User


The basic functionalities to easily get users registered with FB or Google.

Ease of use

Very easy and simple to setup and use.


It's free! You shouldn't expect support when you are GIVEN such an effective plugin.


Just follow the 9m video on the developers website. What else is needed?

I used this to: Logging and registering users with their FB and Google account. What else? :) Just one little snag: if you have user custom fields DON'T place the buttons ABOVE the form fields (setting in manage plugins "User Social Networks"). The values users type get saved but not displayed.

Works very well! Very nice one.

Setting up APIs is not documented, this can make some issues in initiating the module.

I used this to: Login and registration with facebook and/or google profile at my site.

Does what I needed - provide ability for users to register and login using FB or Google accounts

Ease of use

The extension is simple to use, the issue is that setting up FB app is not obvious, and extension help could be a bit better.


Developer responded quickly to a question although I was not expecting her to as it is free and she has a proper job as well.


Almost doesn't need documentation, but if you are not familiar with FB (I hate it and don't use it) then setting up the FB end is not easy.

I used this to: Allowing users to register and login with their Facebook or Google IDs if they have them. Need to warn them that if they do they will also be logged in to FB/Google and logging out of the Joomla site will not log them out of FB/Google - might be an issue for some privacy users
