The service monitors traffic on Facebook and Twitter and conducts semantic analysis to identify frequently occurring words and phrases associated with trends emerging as common discussion topics. It matches a search query with headlines, videos, images, phrases, and hashtags posted to the social media platforms on the same topic. Posts are grouped and linked by topic to select relevant content and identify popular concerns of the moment.
API methods support submission of a query term with optional parameters to specify the platform to be searched (Twitter, Facebook, or both) and the number of responses to return. Parameters can also include a location to limit results to responses originating in a particular area. Returned values include URLs most frequently associated with the query term, as well as associated hashtags, phrases, and sources.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
