Hey all,

We are developing a website that has standard forms authentication access to the underlying member system - nothing out of ordinary here!

How do we now integrate connecting using Facebook and/or Twitter?
Does anyone have experience with this and can point us in right direction.

We are just not sure what you do after you authenticate with Facebook/Twitter REST API - how do you assign forms authentication ticket?
Do you have to store the Facebook and Twitter details against the user account?

Would love to hear any commentary on this - much appreciated!

Thanks for your time.

Cheers.
Steve
