LinkedIn, the social network for business, has announced an enhanced version of its People Search API. While the V1 Search API contained some powerful and easy-to-use features, the latest additions for the new API are quite impressive.
The sharing of thousands of online images is a big part of daily social media interaction. Even with the accompanying comments enhanced by expressive punctuation or clever emoticons, however, nothing beats an actual spoken response for an accurate representation of how a person has really responded to an image or what they really think about that image. SayRoom makes this possible by allowing users to actually voice and share their recorded reactions. The service also provides the SayRoom API that allows developers to access these audio messages created by users.
Social sharing site Digg is preparing a version upgrade to its API. Along with its flagship site's major redesign, which is not yet public, Digg will launch v2 of its developer platform. However, there are new digs for Digg developers available now, with documentation, language kits and what will likely become an app gallery.
