Now it will be much annoying to log into third party Apps using social media accounts. Apple’s iOS 11 Makes it Difficult to Log into Apps Using Facebook & Twitter.
Venture Capitalist Sean Cook revealed that:
“Social accounts have been removed from Settings iOS 11. Third-party apps no longer have access to those signed-in accounts.”

Facebook and Twitter are considered the back bone of social media. As millions of people use it, it is indeed a hassle for users. There are many Apps including OpenTable and WhatsApp, which automatically logs you in using Facebook credentials. However for twitter it is less alarming as minimum number of people rely on Twitter.
Right now, iOS apps can access the identities of connected Twitter and Facebook accounts if users have signed to those accounts via settings section. It makes easier as users don’t have to manually log into Facebook or Twitter for approaching each apps that relies upon access to those accounts.
Upon removing this feature, Facebook and Twitter will be downgraded for sure. This is indeed bad for both social media platforms. However iPhone users will get over it soon.
