There are over 1,000 social APIs in the ProgrammableWeb directory. The big names in that list, Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn and Twitter, are also amongst the most popular public APIs overall. Since other API providers look to these leaders for examples in engaging with developers, I thought it would be useful to see how each uses a common communications medium. That's right, how do the social APIs use social media themselves?
There are many ways for websites to tap into online social networking services to allow their users to connect with each other. Now, for publishers who want to add social network functions to already existing websites, Yahoo! has announced their new Updates API, a web service that provides permission-based access to the actions of any user with a Yahoo! account. As part of Yahoo!'s Open Strategy (Y!OS), this API essentially allows developers to treat the Yahoo! network as a social networking platform (for more on Y!OS see our coverage of the initial Y!OS announcement and their YQL launch).
In less than sixty days since the private beta release of its API, Portland-based Shizzow has now released its API (our Shizzow API Profile) to the public. If you are not familiar with Shizzow, it is a location-based social service that a small, yet dedicated, team of techies built with the goal of helping you build quality relationships through face-to-face interaction. Sharing some similarity with Yahoo!'s Fire Eagle and other location based services, Shizzow functions as a geo-location service that allows users to send "shouts" out of their location, which are subsequently passed on to friends through updates in several mediums. Originally limited for use by Portlanders, Shizzow recently went public in conjunction with the public release of their API.
