We had over a dozen new APIs added to our API directory this week. As with last week's additions, it's a mixed set both in terms of functionality and company size. Functionally these new ones include two APIs for video streaming, a document sharing API, and others for email marketing, url shortening, semantic term extraction and online-centric functions like OpenID, web site thumbnail generation, as well as IP-to-geo mapping.

In the densely populated world of social media, it can become difficult for businesses to identify who best to engage with in order to achieve what they need to on the web; it’s hard to tell the real experts and the influential from those who simply aren’t.

Little Bird also provides the Little Bird API that allows developers to use this service and integrate it with other applications.
