Instagram PHP SDK by Lenny Code is an integration of Instagram's API in PHP. Requirements include PHP & cURL in a server and a registered Instagram application. Developers will need to register a new app with Instagram. To use the kit, download the class, the bootstrap, and the index file. Then include the tools in a project. Following, extract client ID, secret client, and redirect URI. Later receive an access token when bootstrap is started.
At the beginning of 2011 we reported that Collect had decided to drop it's API in order to change their offering to something more profitable. But now ReadWriteWeb have reported the disappointing demise of Collecta. This has the potential of being the first big failure of a well funded real-time web focused company, so questions need to be asked about why this happened and why Collecta weren't successful. Back in January of this year we asked "Is It Finally the End for Real-time Search Engines?" and it now looks like that very question is being raised again.
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.
