Functionality
It works as expected.

Ease of use
Seems easy to use

Documentation
Documentation ok. NB the download link is only for the component. If you want the module you need to get it from github
-1
Value for money
I used this to: Keeping a record of components and modules installed and settings, modifications and overrides used. Both for a record within the site and also to migrate to other new sites. Simple and effective. Once a site is live you probably don't need the module as all will be checked.

Functionality
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.

Support
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.
86
Documentation
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.

Value for money
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

Use with Mailman


Posted on 05 January 2010
You can use this to send subscription requests to a MailMan list - simply enter listname-join@listdomain.tld as the destination address and set it to use the user's entered name/address as the from address. User then gets standard mailman confirmation email (and optional moderator approval). Picks up the realname too. Ideal, many thanks.
