Less than three months after joining the OpenID Foundation’s board as a sustaining corporate member (i.e. putting its weight and financial support behind OpenID), Facebook has just announced at the “technology tasting” event this afternoon at its Palo Alto headquarters that users will soon be able to log in to Facebook with their OpenID.
This is a big win that gives OpenID mainstream support and acceptance. Hopefully it will lead to more provider support, as well as greater user adoption.
Now I’ll be able to log on to Facebook using my iPhone as a virtual token.
