The emergence of mobile device checkin activity is creating a wealth of information about the real world. However, successfully finding and effectively using opinions provided by people you trust on your social graph can be a challenge. Springpad, the maker of personal task management products and Springpad API that help users organize their digital lives, is releasing a new feature called Friends Stuff that aims to help you get the most out of the recommendations buried in your online social network.
When it comes to interacting with the over800 social APIs, it's not just about your friend's data. It's also about your own data. The Personal Data Revolution is about making that data available to you, which is where the APIs come in.
