A Review of Rest-Based APIs for Developing Social Networks Mashups


There is a need for more and better applications that combine features of social networks with the purpose of providing results of added-value to users. Whit this, a new kind of applications called mashups has emerged. A mashup is a Web application that integrates data from multiple Web sources in order to provide a unique service. Internal data sources, RSS/Atom feeds, Screen-Scraping and Web services are some resources used by mashups. Nowadays, most of Web services provided by social networks use the REST-based architectural style because it offers significant advantages in comparison with other technologies. This paper presents a review of 7 RESTbased APIs for social networks; in addition, a set of 3 mashups were developed combining the APIs discussed.
