With over 6700 mashups in our directory, it's good to go back and look at previously reviewed categories to see what is new. Last year we looked at mashups that let users share their photos. Today, we'll go back and look at the latest mashups using photo APIs including Flickr; still the king of photo APIs.
The most popular API, in terms of mashup count, is far and away the Google Maps API, which accounts for 41% of all mashups. But when it comes to the most popular pair of APIs, Flickr and YouTube mashups are the most common. Not to be outdone, Google Maps joins Flickr in a near second place.
Facebook has rewarded a 10 year-old boy from Finland with a $10,000 bounty for discovering an authentication-related vulnerability in the Instagram API that could have enabled a hacker to delete comments of any user on the popular social photo sharing service even without an Instagram account.
