It seems that Social media space has been revitalized with the new features and launches and the competition is constant growing with every passing day. It’s just like F1 race, who will reach the podium first. In last two days, Facebook has introduced two new applications – “Smart friend list” and “Subscribe”. Post to this Twitter has also included five new languages for tweets. Now, it’s the turn for Google to launch first application programming interface (API) for its social networking initiative Google+.

Google+ API will focus only on those data which are publicly available – updates of users on Google Plus page. Through this API, Google+ users’ profiles and posts can be accessed by developers to integrate such features with any third-party application.

 “This is just the beginning; the Google+ platform will grow and we value your input as we move Google+ forward,” Google said on its blog.

In June, Google launched its much awaited Facebook competitor called Google+ with lots of excitement among social media users across the globe. To create the excitement among the users at early launch days, Google+ was available only for set of people. However, it became openly available for everyone lately.

Interestingly, Google+ was also criticized badly by media due to lack of woman users. After Google unveiled service of it social networking site Google+, it reached 10 million landmarks in just two weeks.

Google+ allows its users to classify their friends into circles, features that has influenced Facebook to launch “Smart Friend List” feature. Another valuable feature called “Hangout” allows maximum 20 people at a time to do Group video chat.

Twitter’s API has already been launched in 2006, followed by Facebook in 2007.
