LiveWorld provides hosted community sites for companies to interact with their customers. These "online parties," as the company calls them, help create dialog and relationships.
The LiveWorld API provides programmatic access to much of the data and functionality within the LiveWorld platform. Developers can retrieve profile information, activity feeds, individual blogs, message forums and photo sharing, among other features.
The API uses both SOAP and RESTful calls. Data for both protocols is made available via XML. Full documentation requires a LiveWorld account.
