Today, LinkedIn announced
that it is opening up its API for developers
to build applications around the platform. LinkedIn is releasing 11 different APIs, they fall into three distinct categories. First, developers will be able to let users easily access their information, profiles, connections and messages via oAuth login.
The second functionality is to give users the ability to make actionable decisions about information, but letting them message their LinkedIn contacts, post updates, accept contacts and more. And the third piece of the puzzle is search. So developers will now be able to embed LinkedIn search in other applications.
I expect to see developers rush out and try to integrate the LinkedIn platform as fast as possible. Expect to see a number of new applications and updates for existing social networking tools such as TweetDeck
One of the first applications built using the LinkedIn API is from he developers of TwitterJobSearch
, which is an Adobe AIR powered Twitter and LinkedIn client that serves as a career management tool for IT professionals. It can be used to track colleagues via LinkedIn and track industry news.
JobDASH also features real-time job listings that are posted on Twitter and cross posted from LinkedIn. You will be able to filter listings based on type of job and is with other sites including Indeed and Workhound.
