Facebook just announced its acquisition of SportStream. Although SportStream identifies itself as a "group of die-hard sports fans," the story underneath the acquisition truly represents an API story. Over the past few months, Facebook has been building its developer toolkit with an armory of new APIs and media partners have begun to flock to its new capabilities. The platform underlying SportStream, SportsBase, and its associated API will give Facebook greater visibility into sports-based conversations across the social media ecosystem.
Every now and then a sharp developer uncovers a clue that leads to discovery of an undocumented, but quite real, web API. A case in point is the folks over at SEO services company Index Content, who noted in their blog yesterday that the popular social news web site Reddit has an API.
