Best of Drupal 8 Modules for Social Login

From gated content to event enrollments, social logins and easy registration are the go-to for many sites now. The website captures data and permissions from your social accounts and gives you access to the content. There are modules primarily dedicated to integrate social accounts and run the process. 

Drupal offers many modules for seamless integration of social logins for your website. 

Let’s skim through the list and their features!
