    Hello wilders!

    I did some basic research about this sign in with google+/facebook/openid but I'm still not sure what's the catch?

    I tried to make an openid but it says I already have an openid if I have a google account. Then I wonder, if I don't want other services to have access to my gmail account or google profile, can I still choose sign in with google?

    Is there a difference between signing with google and facebook? It seems facebook account is not an openid account?

    This is utterly confusing to me...
