Single Sign On: Why does it suck so often? Primarily used because login and account systems are difficultto develop and implement; however, account systems offer adeeper relationship with users CON: System will not connect the dots if logging in through different services each time (e.g. Facebook and Twitter) PRO: Data is built over time and provided up front PRO: Other services will provide account maintenance CON: Different services provide different functionalities andinterpretations of data 8.
