[The LinkedIn People Search API is now the LinkedIn REST API. This profile is being maintained purely for historical and research purposes.]
LinkedIn is a social network service for professionals. The API LinkedIn People Search could help developers to access information about people. This is an API about personal information. As LinkedIn discloses in their website, this API is part of the Vetted Access Program. It is recommended to obtain approval from the company first. The following permissions are required: basic profile default, all or none grant, optimization for 3 permissions and permission changes. Similarly, the next calls are offered: user’s own data, user’s network data, groups data and company data. The API format is XML and requires OAuth for authentication.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
