New Digg APIs May Give Developers Chance To Make Some Money

Posted Jun 17, 2009

Digg has announced a new set of APIs that give developers access to Digg content.  The new API set gives developers access to search endpoints.  The Digg APIs will allow developers to use advanced shortcuts, common search tricks, and search by domain name.

Another API gives developers the chance to find related information on other Digg stories and find similar stories that diggers have dugg.  There is also an API that returns Digg stories with similar keywords.  In the near future, Digg plans to add Digging and burying capabilities to the APIs.

Another major limitation that was removed from the API license is the commercial agreement.  Developers will now be able to use Digg APIs and have full ownership of the fees for free.
