Social Media API: Overview
Social Media API is based on website embeds developed and supported by social media platforms. By mirroring the embed in our environment we are able to aggregate data on social media interactions associated with a certain page.
Consequently, by specifying up to ten URLs in the request to Social Media API’s endpoints, you will get the number of social interactions for each corresponding page.
For now, Social Media API supports three social media platforms: Facebook, Pinterest, and Reddit. More datasources will be made available in the future.
This endpoint will provide you with a number of likes a page received through a Facebook Like Button embed.
This endpoint provides the number of pins a page received through a Pinterest Save Button embed.
This endpoint provides information for each relevant Reddit interaction, including subreddit and author names, permalink, title, and the number of subreddit members.
Setting a task
The returned results are specific to the URLs passed in the
targets array when setting a task. You can specify up to ten URLs in a single task.
All endpoints of the Social Media API support the Live method of data retrieval. It doesn’t require making separate POST and GET requests – the results will be provided immediately after setting a task.
You can send up to 2000 POST and GET API calls per minute in total, with each POST call containing no more than 100 tasks. Contact us if you would like to raise the limit.
Priorities and cost
The cost can be calculated on the Pricing page. You can check your spending in your account dashboard or by making a separate call to the User Data endpoint
