Circle of Trust « D3

Is there a way to visualize how each person is using and constructing this social environment? With these two questions in mind, we want to give you a good real example of how the brand new Google+ API can be used now at its early stages. The idea came from something that our friend Jack Byrnes, character of the movie Meet the Parents, likes to call The Circle of Trust. With a free interpretation of Jack’s theory, we made a simple algorithm to visualize who are the people that are inside your circle of trust and who are the people out. It all boils down to this: Green are the people you have circled and they have circled you back, yellow is for people that you cared to circle but they didn’t, and red is for people that have circled you but you didn’t care to circle back. The Circle of Trust is an interface data-visualization experiment using Google+ API and HTML5.Check it out!

Getting Started on the Google+ API - Google+ Platform Blog

The Google+ platform brings that nuance and richness to all of the web. We started with Google’s own products, added the +1 button for site owners and content publishers, and introduced games from a handful of partners. That’s just the beginning though — we want every one of you who builds applications to be able to include rich sharing, identity, and conversations in your app. Today, we’re taking the next step on that journey by launching the first of the Google+ APIs.

Google Plus API for Public Data Released

After less than three months, Google has made an initial version of a Google Plus API available for developers. The service can access public information on people and the activities the user’s have chosen to post publicly, as opposed to a specific circle. In July we asked Is Google Plus Intentionally Late? Google said it wanted to learn how developers will use the service before providing an API.

This is likely only the very first version of a Google Plus API. The announcement post makes sure to point out only public data is available: Google+ gives users full control over their information, supporting everything from intimate conversations with family to public showcases and debates. As with many new APIs we see, Google Plus returns only JSON, not XML. Google Plus has several client libraries, likely thanks to the Google APIs Discovery API.

OpenSocial

Structure[edit] Based on HTML and JavaScript, as well as the Google Gadgets framework, OpenSocial includes multiple APIs for social software applications to access data and core functions on participating social networks.[2] Each API addresses a different aspect.[3] It also includes APIs for contacting arbitrary third party services on the web using a proxy system and OAuth for security. In version 0.9 OpenSocial added support for a tag-based language.[4] This language is referred to as OSML and allows tag-based access to data from the OpenSocial APIs that previously required an asynchronous client side request. It also defined a rich tag template system and adopted an expression language loosely based on the Java Expression Language.
