Note: Please "watch" this class if you are interested. I will schedule it once we have enough watchers.
Whether you are building a socially-enabled corporate presence, connecting a web application with social identities, or simply want to dabble in social APIs, this class is for you!
The "big 4" social networking sites--Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn--all have programming interfaces that provide easy access to a huge base of users and a wealth of information. Effectively integrating these social APIs can mean more traffic, better visibility, and improved usability.
We'll begin with a brief overview of what is available, discuss security and privacy implications, then build a sample web site as a way to showcase the capabilities of the various APIs.
Nafis is a member of the Baha'i community and has served in various volunteer capacities as a teacher of children's classes and a tutor of home-based study groups. Most recently he has worked extensively with the junior youth spiritual empowerment program, which is showing its effectiveness around the world in helping young people to become agents of positive change in their communities. Nafis lives with his wife and two kids in Palo Alto.
