Suppose I am having login form as :

social sign in

How can I direct users to opt in for Google sign-in preferably against Twitter like by doing:

  • placing google option closer to login form
  • making google option bigger ( though I feel it won't be good UI move )
  • giving a note to opt for google ( quite strongly feel it definitely won't make sense )

The reason I am not removing Twitter option completely are:

  • want to give user an alternate option
  • after a slightly rough survey I found: there will be quite a few users from twitter as well
  • Is Google sign in more important than your email sign in or are they of equal importance?

1 Answer 1


In my opinion I would leave it as is and let the users choose (I would think more would use google than twitter anyway), but if you want to do it that way I see a couple ways you could do it:

  1. Just tell the user your preferred option enter image description here

  2. Have google as the default option showing, then under a dropdown panel of sorts have alternative options (twitter, fb, etc.) enter image description here

  3. I don't know if it is applicable to your site but give some sort of value prop to using google, such as "Sign in with your Google+ account and receive 50 free points" or "Sign in with Google+ and connect with your friends easier"

P.S note that I moved Google to the top of both options, I believe that will help just by grabbing users that go for the first option.

  • Though 2nd option requires extra user click but that's more appealing to drive user (silently) to opt for Google. Thanks
