There are too many beneficial accounts with social development. In general, WordPress website agrees that users create new accounts to interact with the website audience through comments, reviews, guest posts. However, creating a separate account for each website is a headache for all users.

Most of us are familiar with this concept when we use social media accounts Facebook, Google+ to login different mobile apps or web apps like Soundcloud, Uber, FoodPanda, etc.
