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 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.
