Login with facebook/twitter/google, etc. - does anyone do it?

Having or "log in with" buttons on forums has become mandatory for forum developers, but do users users actually use these methods of registering or logging in? I don't think any of the users of the two forums I've run cared about these. And I'm not sure that any used them. Is there a way to find out?

You can check the xf_user_external_auth table in the database.

Quite a lot of the members in my forum use all three.

If you post links on Twitter for example, people clicking those will inevitably log in/register via Twitter.

i dont know, about members but im just starting to make use of them.. But i will say i once accidently deleted the app and disabled facebook registration for a few months before i found and fixed the problem not one single member mentioned a thing and best i can tell is they are heavy facebook users..
