Location-sharing service Gowalla is preparing to launch its long-awaited write API (our Gowalla API profile). The move could makes its platform as desirable as its main competitor, FourSquare. With it, comes the need to relinquish a bit of control of the user experience, something Gowalla has considered an important factor of its success.
Users of the Buffer app and Buffer API can now schedule status updates to LinkedIn, in addition to Twitter and Facebook, from a single publishing interface. Buffer, the web-based service that allows its users to write tweets and status updates ahead of time and then schedule their posts throughout the day, has extended its service to include the professional networking platform LinkedIn.
