LinkedIn Opens Up API to Developers [washingtonpost.com]
LinkedIn recently launched two-way integration with Twitter and also rolled out a plug-in to pull in your LinkedIn contacts within Microsoft Outlook. And today, LinkedIn is opening up its API to start letting developers make applications that tap into LinkedIn's social network.

While LinkedIn is releasing 11 different APIs, they fall into three distinct categories. First, developers will be able to let users easily access their information, profiles, connections and messages via oAuth login. The second functionality is to give users the ability to make actionable decisions about information, but letting them message their LinkedIn contacts, post updates, accept contacts and more. And the third piece of the puzzle is search. So developers will now be able to embed LinkedIn search in other applications.

It's becoming easier to use your SNS graph the same way you would your Rolodex of old. This Outlook integration is right in line with the users of LinkedIn. Instead of manually entering all those business cards you can connect on LinkedIn and have an entire profile to share.
