Ever wondered what impact your active presence on the Web has? For example, when you write a blog post or tweet about something, you may be interested in how many tweets your post receives and how many users can potentially reach your post. There are many ways to measure your social impact, however, to cover all social channels and platforms can be difficult to achieve. A Silicon Valley based company BackType builds an analytics platform that helps you understand your social impact at large. BackType's major goal is to give users a very comprehensive view of all social media. Today, it supports over one million sites and networks including Twitter and Facebook. When your app wants to get all the data that comes from Twitter, you can use the Twitter's Streaming API which is the subject to various limits. BackType, however, belongs among those few that have the unlimited access to the full Twitter firehose. It can access more than 50 million tweets a day coursing through Twitter.
Innovation in web service APIs is not always technical, sometimes it's about money. Such is the case with Yahoo's announcement that later this year they will begin charging for usage of BOSS (Build your Own Search Service), their search web service for developers. Given that search revenue is typically ad-driven, and that advertising doesn't typically mesh with APIs, this has meant that search APIs have been one of the most challenging classes of APIs for providers to monetize. So it's notable to see how Yahoo has chosen to tackle this: via a 'utility' pricing model, somewhat akin to how infrastructure services like Amazon Web Services charge by usage.
