Of the many APIs we published this week, eight were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eight, which included the Topsy API. The Topsy API allows developers to integrate social metrics, social insight, and social content from past time periods or in real time. These metrics include the full spectrum of social media data. From simply counting the amount of hash tags for a certain topic to the influencers that started the topic in the first place, Topsy is extensive. It also indexes data in real time, which explains why they have indexed over 100 billion itmes. To learn more about the Topsy API visit the Topsy site as well as the Topsy API blog post.
The Fareclock REST API, returning data in JSON, available on its pro service only, allows you to integrate this time clock into other applications. We previously wrote about the implications of how crowded the face recognition space is with 38 APIs in our directory, suggesting among other things that it isn't clear how so many companies offering the technology will maintain an edge and survive. But Fareclock represents a different breed of business design: use facial recognition to create an app, in this case a time clock that employees can punch, that in turn can be used via an API.
