Gnip Adds Reddit, Instagram API’s
Data aggregation platform Gnip announced the addition of public APIs for Instagram, Reddit, bitly, Stack Overflow, Panaramio and Plurk to its Enterprise Data Collector.
Gnip, the firm responsible for marketing the Twitter and Tumblr firehoses, is a popular source of data for developers. Each month it delivers more than 100 billion “social data activities” to its clients making it a powerful platform for those looking for opportunities to enrich their application’s experience for end-users.
Let’s take a closer look at the API’s that have been added to Gnip and what developers now have at their disposal by using its Enterprise Data Collector:
- Instagram: Users will be able to access popular posts, conduct tag searches and geo-related searches
- Reddit: Gnip users will be able to search by keyword and hot topics; ideal for monitoring brand mentions, particularly in a crisis communication context.
- Bitly: Users are able to search keywords, destination page titles and URLs, and some of the content and header tags. See some recent coverage of bitly's API from Website Magazine.
- Stack Overflow: Gnip customers will have access to the entire firehose of Stack Overflow answers and be able to search tags, reputation and comments by keyword.
- Panoramio: Gnip customers will be able to use the photo-sharing website to monitor social activity within a certain geographic area.
- Plurk: Gnip customers will be able to search the microblogging site for keywords within posts to understand trending content and monitor the platform for specific brand mentions.
