XING is a social network for business professionals. Over 12 million members use the platform to find jobs, colleagues, new assignments, cooperation partners, experts and generate business ideas. The XING API lets developers connect their app with the entire XING network. Developers can access much of the functionality of the platform including accessing profiles, conversations, jobs, contacts, news and more. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in JSON.
Of the many APIs we published this week, fourteen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those fourteen, which included the Stamps.com API. The Stamps.com API provides web-based applications or ecommerce site with a platform allowing users to generate USPS shipping labels in virtually any technology environment
Germany-based "business social network" XING announced this week that the XING API is now officially out of beta, and invited external developers to register for access at dev.xing.com. Since March of this year, the XING API has been available as a "closed beta," and XING reported that over three thousand developers tried out the API during that period, "creating almost 150 active apps and producing around 17 million API requests per day."
