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.
You can't catch a fish without enticing bait. It's a fact; incentive gets people to take action. When it comes to the web, every company wants to get potential customers or fans to interact with their brand and demonstrate loyalty, and the best way to do that is to offer users something exciting for their efforts. Push Entertainment is a service that offers a range of loyalty applications for consumer brands. The company also provides an API that allows developers access to this data.
