As we saw in our Q3 2013 social login data, the war for consumer identity on the web is hotly contested, with Facebook, Google/Google+, Yahoo! and Twitter all competing to become the primary trusted consumer identity. And while networks like Google/Google+ continue to make gains, Gigya’s Q4 social login data showed a subtle but important shift in consumer preferences. Facebook still just barely holds a majority in the aggregate view of logins, but the world’s largest social networks saw significant gains in important industry verticals such as Consumer Brands and Travel web properties and increased its position as the leading social login provider in Europe as well. Additionally, Google/Google+ continued to make steady progress as an identity provider on the web while Yahoo! saw steep declines in several categories.
