Will more people use Google to sign in to services, when available, over Open ID?

I think Facebook is actually being used more.

For our company, people use Facebook to sign in twice as much as Google and Yahoo. OpenID sign in is virtually non existant.

All of the options on this site – including Facebook – are using their flavor of OAuth to do the trick. Note for the astute observer: I just turned off the regular username/password login for this site.

The various ways to login to this site use a technique called OAuth.
