Social Media based Authentication is a tie-in to the campus Single Sign On system called Shibboleth.
Social Auth simplifies the authorization to services of users who do not have local (eID) accounts by relying on trusted 3rd party partners (Facebook, Google, etc.) to do the user-authentication piece and trusting the user identity to be verified by that 3rd party. No actual user data is sent to the 3rd party.
