Here is a temp LinkedIn API for accessing data from a users profile.

To get raw XML (it does have an XSL attached) of a public linkedin profile - like http://www.linkedin.com/brandoncorbin

Use http://jobfu.org/brandoncorbin-asxml
for the plain html version you use http://jobfu.org/brandoncorbin

I am going to open source the PHP Class, doesn't really matter as It will be irrelevant in a few months.

I contacted them about this last year. It's great to see they actually did it!

The LinkedIn guys are control freaks and they are doing all this just for the money. I'd never waste my time doing something with their crappy apis, sorry.

I retract my previous statement. THEY aren't really doing ANYTHING. It's NOT open. You CANT develop anything for them unless they let you. Even with YOUR OWN DATA! LAME!

Hi Ajay, the LinkedIn API is available to developers by approval only and you will need to request access from their team.

Hope this helps.

hi, can anyone help me here. this is where i am at...

i was trying to develop a business networking site which allowed content submission like news & articles which sites like linkedin currently dont offer.

i then came against the thought... what if i used linkedins already popular social base rather than create my own one and maybe create an app / widget or some kind of mashup instead.

can anyone share any ideas or help in creating this. how could this work, what methods could i use, is this a good idea?

email me dhugal2@yahoo.co.uk to discuss or leave a post here.

thanks all!

on http://bit.ly/LinS you can see an implementation of the new LinkedIn Api : Stats about your social graph on linkedin.

Furthermore you can checkout the great http://developer.linkedin.com site for documentation on this nice new API.
