    Isn’t the main reason for seeking authorization through Facebbook Connect or Twitter OAuth so that companies can mine the data of the people registering? Or at least it is a subsidiary reason.

    I was initially excited about Pinterest, but I quickly found concern that I couldn’t register without a connection to F or T.  Pinterest was my kind of entrance into Social Media through visual imagery, but I was stone cold stopped when I needed F or T for entry.

    I have a FB account, but keep it to a very few “friends”; I have no desire to go “public” with every detail of my life.  Therefore, when I discovered Pinterest requires signing up through FB, I backed off.  I am furniture refinisher/resaler, decorator, crafts person, baker/cook, and enjoy exercise and home improvement projects.  I could have enjoyed Pinterest, and others could have enjoyed my ideas, but alas…Pinterest, you lost me.
