MySpace Unleashes a Real-Time Data Flood
ADOTAS – Not surprisingly, internally they’re calling it the Flood API: among an array of new APIs launching on Wednesday, MySpace announced it is opening its real-time stream to developers and thus releasing an inundation of data regarding user interactions on the site.
The full MySpace activity steam can be pushed to third-party websites and apps and managed via granular filters. As launch partners, Google, OneRiot and Groovy will be accessing various public information such as public profile data, status updates, photos and music to bolster search results.
“We previously allowed developers to draw from our activity stream in a traditional polling fashion,” the MySpace Developer Team wrote in a blog post. “Now, developers can get the same stream pushed to their sites, with additional controls and metadata.”
