Mashups using the same API (2)
In 2011, we learned that even our cars and trucks were going "social" when Salesforce.com announced its partnership with Toyota. However, the social capabilities of the partnership were limited in scope (car diagnostics, tune up reminders, etc.). What if your car could prevent you from driving a certain route because it knew what areas were traffic-heavy? That car sounds "social" in a fuller sense; it might be possible with the new Beat the Traffic API.
Actwitty acts as an online curator of a user's social networking data. The system gathers data from platforms like Facebook and Twitter and categorizes them into topics such as sport, entertainment, politics and more. This creates an organized profile that can be shared with others, showing how the user's time is spent on the Internet according to topics, a trend across time of topics, key terms the user may share on specific topics, popularity in various services and more. The Actwitty API allows developers to access this data.
Salesforce.com is holding its flagship event Dreamforce at Moscone Center in San Franscisco this week, and before we spend time covering some of its new initiatives in what the company calls the Social Enterprise, I thought it would be a good time to review the APIs that developers can use as part of the DeveloperForce program.
