Facebook Authentication System

We’re pleased to add a new Facebook Authentication System to our growing stable of SputnikNet login methods.

Here’s how it works:

You can now create one or many Facebook Authentication Systems and add them to your captive portals. All you need to do is create a Facebook app in your account (more information about how to do this is at developers.facebook.com) and link it to SputnikNet. Then, when users connect to your Wi-Fi access point, they’ll be presented to log in with their Facebook credentials.

Sputnik’s Facebook Authentication System has tons of flexibility. Here are just some of the things you can do:

  • Have customers login to your hotspot with their Facebook ID
  • Require or request a Facebook Like (to the web page of your choice)
  • Require or request a wall post (you can have up to ten pre-written wall posts that will appear on your customer’s walls)
  • Require or request customers’ email addresses
  • Require or request customers’ birthrates
  • Award session limits based upon how much the customer agrees to share
  • Full customization of the look and feel and login text

As with all other SputnikNet Authentication Systems, you can set bandwidth up/down limits, apply network policies, and completely control the look and feel of the login process.

Best of all, as you collect customer data it is yours to do with per your customer privacy agreements. For example, you can collect email addresses for online marketing programs.

We believe SputnikNet’s Facebook Authentication is the most flexible way of using Facebook to enable customers to log into Wi-Fi. You are in complete control, with the ability to request or require the appropriate information or social gesture from your customers, and full and exclusive access to the data you generate.
