Thanks, Google and Plaxo, I’ve got a cool new Public Profile!

If you followed the news on Friday (no, not that news), you know that Google stirred things up with the surprise release of a Social Graph API. Plaxo managed to be the first out the gate with an application that leveraged the API, launching Public Profiles within an hour of the announcement!

Sure, I was the poster boy for the new feature, as shown in this screenshot:

But screenshots don’t really do this new feature justice. WAY BETTER to check out my actual live dynamic profile!

    this is great and all, not I have a wonder… why hasn’t Plaxo considered being a OpenID provider. The ‘MyPlaxo’ seems like a great access point for an OpenID. That all said…. I definitely like everything going on a Plaxo. This public Profile is a definite nice solution to having many ‘home websites’ and being able to consolidate and share all my feeds.

    Nick, Thanks! Plaxo has every intent of becoming an OpenID provider (and we’re feeling bad that we haven’t yet!). We’re still a pretty small company, and between supporting OpenID as a consumer, Open Social, microformats, and the just launched Social Graph API, our plate has been pretty full! Stay tuned…
