If you want your online visitors to count as active users, you need them to sign in.
Besides the usual login form, a friendly reminder to sign in for the full experience might do the trick:
This pop-up sits on the right hand corner at the bottom of the page, so when viewing the site on full screen, it is pretty unobtrusive.
I’m usually working on computers where I am logged in to all these social media, so a little note to tell me when I’m not signed in can be helpful.
Of course from a user perspective one could question why we always have to be signed in just to see basic content, but that’s the hidden digital currency we pay with for all these free services.
And why such a pop-up reminder doesn’t display proper punctuation is also questionable.
But in general, to create an effective Call To Action together with the Reason Why as a prompt to sign in is very Good Practice.
