Should I use Facebook or Drinknation to log in? What's the difference?
The short version: use Facebook if you have a Facebook account.
The long version:
If you have an account on Facebook, chances are good that you're logged into it already, and just like us, are probably logged into it most of the time.
Drinknation uses the Facebook API (programming jargon for "talking to each other") to allow you to use your Facebook account to log in to Drinknation. Drinknation acts like any other facebook application, such as Farmville, Slots, Mafia Wars, etc. This makes it extremely convenient to come to our site and not have to worry about remembering a separate username/password, or worry about clicking on weird blog buttons that ask for 3 step login procedures just to post something to a social networking site. Drinknation just becomes like an extension of Facebook, letting you share stuff you find here.
Benefits: Allowing Drinknation to connect to Facebook lets you post recipes and comments to your news feed when you find great content on our site you want to share. It also gives you all the benefits described in the next section ("Why should I bother logging in at all?") automatically, without having to sign up for a regular Drinknation account and have to remember a username/password for yet another website.
If you just want to use a regular Drinknation account, some of the facebook integrated features won't be available to you, and you'll need to remember your username/password for Drinknation.com. Hey, it's what we did for years, back in 'ought two. You kids and your fancypants facebookin' - when we were young, we had to transfer data over 28.8 baud modems, and it was uphill both ways!
Why should I bother logging in at all?
Yeah, that's something we say all the time too. Especially when the boss comes around and asks us to do something. Usually he says "You won't get fired", but sometimes he just hits us and puts the chains back on. We're thinking of maybe telling him how we feel.
But enough about us. You want to know why you should bother getting yet another username and password on yet another web site? Ok. Here's some reasons.
In summary: it's easy, and it's worth it. So:Click here to register!
