Tangler, an online network of discussion forums, recently announced their new API. The Tangler service takes traditional discussion forums to a new level, by allowing anyone to easily set up a discussion forum that can grow to include hundreds of topics and thousands of users.
For a long time the comment section on any webpage was nothing more than internet real estate about to be foreclosed on. Plagued by spammers, pointless shout outs, and unreal amounts of bickering, most users chose to forgo perusing what was once a land of potential user interaction. Livefyre, a designer of Dynamic comment platforms, is working hard at ushering commenting into the promised land, with the Livefyre API to help get us there.
Gnip, never ceasing to expand access to social media data, has launched its YouTube Comments API. With the new API, Gnip hopes to offer more value to social media managers with regards to insight-rich comments that often prove difficult to harness as comments continue far after a YouTube post. Gnip includes the API as part of its famed Enterprise Data Collector.
