Live Connect Usage
Use it to solve two primary problems:
-- Easy Sign-On across devices, apps and the web
-- Seamless access to user’s personal content
The Single Sign-On Paradox
Users dislike signing in
Personalization increases engagement and loyalty to website & apps
STOP building identity system with its inherent challenges
SSO with Windows Live ID aka MSFT Account
In-built SSO in Windows Phone & Windows 8
Automatic sign-on because you used that other thing
Declaration of access through Scopes
One-time permission to apps/websites .. then Zero-Click SSO
Roam user settings across devices connected to same account
Consistent UX that preserves context
Access to Content & Storage
Read/Write user’s Contacts .. personalize
Utilize user’s Calendar when appropriate
Leverage SkyDrive .. You don’t need to host anything for storage
Organize, traverse & allow for personalization in storage
