ConnectYard, a leading social engagement solutions provider, has just announced the launch of a brand new RESTful Web API which makes it possible for developers to create third-party applications as well as integrate ConnectYard functionality into other existing platforms.
The Swipp API allows developers to integrate Swipp's "Social Intelligence" into their sites and applications. Public information is not available on the API; interested parties are asked to email email@example.com. Once available the APIs will "make it possible for people to interact around any topic imaginable."
AOL is now offering developers who create applications using the Open AIM API the opportunity to make money. AIM Money is a new revenue-share platform where developers profit from ads they embed into their Open AIM applications.
