Logged-in via Google, LinkedIn button behaviour should be enhanced.
We are receiving quite a lot of feedback from existing users (accounts). The problem is that they think they can login with their other Emails account but the result is a new account creation instead.
Probably we should split the functionalities in 2 buttons (like others services do):
- Sign up: only create the user account if not existent (here it would be nice to import user avatar if present)
- Sign in: authorise the user account (does not create an account if the email does not exist in the LR DB) perhaps should say if you want to link your e.g. gmail account go to your profile bla bla bla
What do you think?

It is true that users expect some "magic", like the system can link something it does not know yet, and this means we should indeed improve the behavior of the login options.
I'm not sure on how much work it is required and how much effort we can give on this. We will investigate it and come back again. In the meanwhile maybe we could make some minor enhancements like adding an informative message for the login options.
A message like "for existing users declared e-mail accounts can be used to sign-in, otherwise a new user account will be created automatically"

In this release I would like to add the "informative" message under the social login buttons to inform user about what is supported.
Since this is part of the login-hook, @firstname.lastname@example.org have you made any changes in this hook in 4.3? Should I add the message or will you do it?
