What would it mean to have a stripped down social network that was also secure? It would look like Tuenti, the social network out of Spain. To give an example of how seriously they take security, the Tuenti API is closed because “of our efforts to be the most private, secure social network on the market…” But if you play nice, they can make exceptions for commercial apps and games they have tested.
The power of choice is a valuable part of our everyday lives, and with so many options at our disposal along with wildly different tastes and opinions, it’s a good thing we have the freedom to choose. Based on this idea, it’s easy to see how things like music charts, recommendations from film critics and general ratings on social media platforms may not be the opinions shared by everybody, and a recommendation system that could focus more on a person’s specific preferences would be quite useful. That’s pretty much what Tumbz has set out to do. The Tumbz API also makes it possible for this functionality to be integrated with other applications.

By providing the Everlapse API, the company also makes it possible for developers to integrate this functionality with other applications.

The Trippin’ In API makes it possible for this functionality to be integrated into already existing recommendation applications, further enhancing their relevance and appeal to users.
