API

If you are an agency or a corporation with needs to integrate social media (and news) data into your offerings, our API allows easy access to the wealth of data and analytics which powers our business today. Virtually everything we offer can be made available through the API.

For long term contracts (atleast an year), the API can be customized to suit the format of your choice. This helps you to make a switch between existing provider easy as there would be very less rewriting of code.

  • HTTP based API
  • Available in both JSON and XML
  • Can take thousands of requests per second

Detailed information about the schema will be provided upon request

Live stream API

Think of this like a firehose of all the data (news and social media) we see. Gives a stream of articles or posts fully tagged with various analytics.

All the posts (or articles) are optionally tagged with the following information:

  • Title
  • URL
  • Publishing source
  • Author name
  • Language
  • Source Influence (0-10, 10 being the highest). Kind of Klout but our very own. 
  • Social Media Impact (Number of shares)
  • Topics (Key events/entities derived from an article)
  • People names detected
  • Geo location of the post
  • Locations mentioned
  • Organizations mentioned
  • Reach
  • EMV (think of it like the Advertising Value Equivalent)
  • Sentiment

Keyword stream API

Same as the Live Stream API except that it returns articles only matching a set of keywords registered through Media Lens (our online platform) before hand.
