16 APIs Used in 7 Days: Amazon Mechanical Turk, Facebook and Zappos

Adam DuVander, April 30th, 2011

This past week 12 new mashups were added to our mashup directory and 16 different APIs were used to build them. Some of the newer or less frequently seen APIs include EEA Discomap, Face.com and Wine.com. The most often used APIs this week are Facebook, Twitter and Wine.com. And the most commonly used types of APIs were Mapping (3 APIs, 3 mashups), Social (3 APIs, 7 mashups) and Music (2 APIs, 2 mashups). The list below shows which APIs were used by which mashups:
