What is Gigya?
Gigya is a leading social optimization platform that allows
web sites to seamlessly connect to other social media platforms
for the purpose of sharing, site registration/authentication, and
other interactive features. Convio partners with Gigya to provide
the Gigya services to our clients in order to deliver reliable and secure
content sharing as well as open authentication.
Gigya has application programming interface (API) services
that work behind the scenes to make safe, secure connections
between user accounts on different systems, such as the popular
social media web sites like Facebook and web sites like yours
for raising funds and awareness of important social issues and causes.
By enabling your constituents to connect their accounts, you can reduce the
number of usernames and passwords they need to remember and reduce duplicate
account creation. It also makes it quick and easy to share an activity or cause
they feel passionately about from your web site with their friends on your
social web sites, which may help add new constituents to your house file.
Before you can enable the Social Sharing and Open Authentication
features on your Convio web site, you must create an account with
Gigya and agree to their terms of service. You must also request
Gigya to provide the appropriate software keys to each social
media web site you will let your constituents connect their accounts to.
