Microsoft has added waypoint optimization to the Bing Maps Routing API, which allows developers to create routes between driving locations. The API is ideal for delivery and transportation businesses, and the route optimization functionality is intended to address the traveling salesman problem.
The Facebook Wall has fallen. Actually, didn't the social network lose the "wall" when it launched Timeline last year? Nevertheless, the Facebook API still had access to post updates (assuming the user gave the app permission).

The business networking site LinkedIn has now launched a new application platform they call InApps. It's an OpenSocial-based platform that enables third-party developers to create applications that get embedded into LinkedIn user's profiles. While this follows along the model used of Facebook, MySpace and host of other social platforms, it differs in its emphasis on being business centric in nature and, like the service itself, follows a much more controlled and button-downed approach. And like the LinkedIn API that we reported on last year, access is limited based on an approval process.
