The Criexe Social Networks API is a metaservice that allows developers to get the number of followers and (when available) "likes" for a page or profile on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google Plus, or Instagram. Developers can get the statistics for a single page or for multiple pages in a single call. When multiple pages are requested, the total number of followers for all pages is provided. This allows users to determine the total number of followers for a single entity across multiple social networks.
This segment of the past year's APIs focuses on eCommerce, Marketing and Social Media. Sub categories covered here include Advertising, Content, Printing, Products, Catalogs, Subscription, Taxes, Feedback, Auctions, Shipping, Ratings, Personalization, SEO, Engagement and others.
Nine APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Internet of Things, Messaging, and Social Media. Featured today are APIs from CronAlarm, for integrating with the cron jobs platform, and from The Things Network, a crowdsourced IoT networking platform.
