Socialmod is a system to either automate or simplify your site's social content moderation. Its socialmod API allows for direct integration of socialmod into your site, making using their service far easier. Its service has been used for such high-profile sites as the BET.com awards, as described in its blog.
Buffer, a social media manger, opened the Buffer API last week beyond its internal apps. According to co-founder, Leo Wildrich, the decision sprung from its single purpose as a company: "How can we make sharing links, videos and images to your social networks easier and more powerful?" Unlike its main competitors, Hootsuite and Sprout Social, Buffer "focus[es] on non-original content sharing, especially photos, videos and articles" states Tech Crunch. As Buffer launches its API, and attempts to make sharing easier, Wildrich stressed that Buffer aims "to build a new sharing standard...across the web."
Facebook will deprecate v2.3 of its Marketing API tomorrow. While v2.4 delivers powerful new features, a number of APIs and features will deprecate tomorrow.
