LinkedIn to open up to developers
The social networking company plans to launch an API to connect to other services.
LinkedIn, the social networking service, plans to open up to developers in an effort to boost its popularity.
"Over next 9 months LinkedIn would deliver APIs for developers, ostensibly to make it more of platform like Facebook, and create a way for users who spend more time socially in Facebook to get LlinkedIn notifications," according to a blog post by Dan Farber at ZDNet.
Also today, reports indicate that Plaxo, a rival site, has created a Web service to share data between major address and calendar programs.
