Should it? I'd say "don't mention the mechanics". Users want to log in using their Facebook or Twitter account. As long as they can to that, they don't really care if it's using OAuth or some other protocol.

In that case you could still call it FriendConnect (or whatever the name of the other protocol was). That would still be recognized by more people than OAuth.

Okay, I just realized that I'm contradicting myself :) I still think we should keep it simple and just wait if the duplication ever happens.
