Hello drmohamedG,

Thank you for contacting Toolset Support.

I will be happy to help you with your issue.

Social login plugins end up creating a user in WordPress anyway, mapped to the social account.

Therefore a social login plugin can be added as an “alternative” registration method. CRED form can then be used to collect additional data or modify existing ones once the login/registration via the social plugin is completed.

E.g
http://wordpress.org/plugins/loginradius-for-wordpress/
http://wordpress.org/plugins/aa-social-login/

You can then use the 'cred_save_data' hook to do any extra processing.

Please let me know if this helps.

Kind regards
