We have added the ability to have users Sign Up or Log In via Facebook. Using this signup/login method gives the lead access to everything that a regular email/password signup does. If a returning users chooses to login via one of those methods we will automatically find their existing account via their email address and associate the accounts correctly.

(If you do not have a Facebook Developers Account, please follow these instructions first: Facebook Developers Account Instructions)
