Canadian based startup LoginRadius is a Software As A Service (SAAS) provider of social infrastructure (Social Login and Social Sharing) that is currently used by over 25,000 websites. Despite being a fairly new service (The company was founded in May 2011), LoginRadius has expanded rapidly, partly in thanks to the LoginRadius API.
In September ProgrammableWeb organized a track on social APIs at DataWeek. We were pleased to be supported in the effort by 3Scale. We also invited the company's Steven Willmott to share what he has seen within the rapidly-growing space of social APIs.
Singly has announced the open beta of its app connection platform. The platform consists of two main components (i.e. the App Fabric SDK and the Data Fabric infrastructure). The App Fabric simplifies social data sharing and shortens time to enable functionality such as friend finding and login across multiple apps. The Data Fabric allows developers to integrate features like synching, data querying, intelligent indexing, instant push, archiving, and more.
