At YourTrove, a lot of what we do involves ingesting social content via APIs and then regularizing that data within our system. For a lot of data, this is pretty straightforward. For example, while Facebook and Flickr might return different meta data, or name fields differently, no one disagrees that a photo is a photo. This is true for essentially all uploaded binary user generated content.
Facebook has announced the release of version 9.0 of the company’s platform SDK and is notifying developers that failure to update integrations to this latest version may result in breaking changes. Additionally, all previous versions are now facing looming deprecation.
