[Twitter] What is an API?
Follow SmallBizTracks on Twitter or Facebook or on Google+. Occasionally, a question comes up about some programming or technology piece. While some questions may seem complicated, I’ve learned that in most cases, a simplified answer – one that makes meaning if possible – is what’s desired. One such question is: What is an API? First – a techy answer : An acronym (Application Programming Interface) representing a computer system or application allowing for requests to be made of it by other programs and allows for data to be exchanged. Think What is an API?

You got that right. There was a bit more to the conversation but here’s the point that I want to get across- and I’m fairly certain that you would agree with me. He’s right.

The pace that it’s currently growing is similar (if not greater than) the type of growth that Twitter experienced 2 years ago. If you haven’t heard of Tumblr, you will. The blog/microblog/community hybrid social media site is well on its way to hitting the mainstream soon. While its users and fans are often rabid, there is one entity that doesn’t give it much respect: Google. Search engines in general are frowning on ranking Tumblelogs well in their results pages because of Tumblr’s greatest strength: ease of content aggregation. Simplicity, Thy Name is Tumblr.

Any analysis of what happened to the record business, what is happening to newspapers, or the future of books and bookstores and magazines and TV that does not feature this concept prominently is almost certainly flawed. Aggregation, of course, simply means pulling together things which are not necessarily connected. Aggregation without curation is, normally, not very helful. Curation creates the brand.

This can be particularly effective when combined with Twitter and Facebook. This post is part of a series titled 10 Ways to Use Social Media for Day-to-Day Business. Every day we will be expanding upon a new tip until the list is complete. If there’s one medium to bet on for the future, it’s video. Tweeting may someday fall out of favor.
