Use social accounts to submit form

    Forms are build to interact with the users of your website. If you use Gravityforms for user generated content or for a contact form, there is a key element missing for building relations and dialogue with your users in 2013.

    Users still can not submit a form using their social media accounts. Not necessary to register as user, just to submit the form and autofill some -hidden- fields.

    There are existing plugins to be used on comments, see example: http://bit.ly/LY9si4
    Why would that not be possible on submitting a Grafityform?

    Benefits:
    For user generated content it will increase traffic due to auto posting on the contributor's wall.
    For contact forms it will be a more secure way to identify the sender instead of those terrible captchas.

    I believe it is possible to have users submit a Gravityform using their social media account. And I also believe Gravityforms and the community of users, developers and team are able to make that happen.

    Can anyone share some idea's, other benefits and/or codes for this necessary add-on?

    I love this idea. Who wouldn't flock to any form system for this feature alone? The possibilities with respect to how it could be used are endless.
