Setting up Facebook authentication for a survey

You can validate your respondent to log onto their facebook account to take the survey. So once the system verifies that the respondent is legit, only then they can take the survey.

How does Facebook Connect work?

Facebook Connect allows users who take your survey to first authenticate on Facebook.com and then (upon a successful authentication) they will be allowed to take the survey.

You can also give the respondents the options to skip the authentication. You will see a text box right below the Facebook connect option
