www.facebook.com login or sign in

On one hand, sites want to make a real world experience with the use of the term sign in, on the other hand, sites like Facebook, etc do not have a sign in option because of another set of logic involved. Here they use login instead. One of the reasons cited is interesting. This has more to do with the visual experience of users.



Sign up or Sign in for a Facebook account

Now when you go to the Facebook homepage, you, as an user, will get 2 options. One option is to create a new account that is, to sign up. The second option is to login to Facebook or to sign in within an existing account. Now it will confuse the eyes of the user if sign in and sign up appear together. The user has to carefully see and check the two terms to choose one among them because both are similar terms as per coinage of the terms. Hence the need to develop two independent terms.

What is the difference between www.facebook.com sign in and sign up?

The technical reason for using login instead of sign in, on www.facebook.com:

It is interesting to note that in a webmaster's audit, the auditor checks the 'log', so as to determine the number of times the user has entered into the sign in session. So, the computer or more appropriately the website maintains a log of the sessions entered into by the user. Hence, the use of the word login. www.facebook.com as a site, also maintains such a log of the number of times the user has entered into sessions. So, Facebook uses the term login instead of sign in.

So, the basic difference is of perspective. If the perspective of the user is taken into account, the user is making a sign in. However, if we take into account the perspective of the website, in this case, www.facebook.com, it is surely a login where Facebook is counting or maintaining a log of the sessions entered into by the user. Technically, a session means a complete cycle of the user logging in and then logging out of the site once the work is done.

Sometimes, when you access www.facebook.com, you may require multiple users to be logging in to Facebook. For that, it is not always necessary to log out and then login again. You have the option of login as a different user.
The easiest way to login to www.facebook.com with different username or email is to add another email id to your account. Then you can designate one of the email ids as your primary email. In this way, you also have the option of accessing the account via the secondary email id.
