Google has announced some new features available for its OpenID API.

We’ve all heard it before. Be careful what you do on social networks because your employer, teacher, business partner or spiritual guru might find out about it. Well now they won’t just find out about it, they’ll ask you to please allow Reppify to access your social network information so that you can be evaluated. Reppify will create a report on you, based on your social network activity, and sum it all up in a numerical ranking. The Reppify API will allow this technology to be integrated into other social network monitoring services like RainMaker.
