It’s been a long year since Yahoo's major search API changes. One of its popular offerings, the Yahoo BOSS API, was marked for transition to a paid service after integrating search results from Microsoft Bing. In April of this year, Yahoo BOSS V2 was released with pricing details, OAuth support and optional Advertising. Users have reacted positively to the changes and Yahoo has responded back with updates to BOSS V2 and a very short timeline to upgrade apps from V1.
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.
