Gnip is excited to announce the addition of Google+ to its repertoire of social data sources. Built on top of the Google+ Search API, Gnip’s stream allows its customers to consume realtime social media data from Google’s fast-growing social networking service. Using Gnip’s stream, customers can poll Google+ for public posts and comments matching the terms and phrases relevant to their business and client needs.
Google+ is an emerging player in the social networking space that is a great pairing with the Twitter, Facebook, and other microblog content currently offered by Gnip. If you are looking for volume, Google+ quickly became the third largest social networking platform within a week of its public launch and some are projecting it to emerge as the world’s second largest social network within the next twelve months. Looking to consume content from social network influencers? Google+ is where they are! (even former Facebook President Sean Parker says so).
By working with Gnip along with a stream of Google+ data (and the availability of an abundance of other social data sources), you’ll have access to a normalized data format, unwound URLs, and data deduplication. Existing Gnip customers can seamlessly add Google+ to their Gnip Data Collectors (all you need is a Google API Key). New to Gnip?
