If you have any questions, please post to this thread in our forums: Thread for questions. On July 21st between 4pm and 7pm PST we will be performing platform maintenance. You may see limited performance issues during this time. We apologize for any inconveniences generated by any service interruptions. We will be performing site wide maintenance on October 10th between 8 pm and 11 pm PST. This maintenance applies to all LinkedIn sites and applications, including our APIs. You may experience limited availability of certain APIs during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please don't hesitate to reach out on our forums if you continue to experience API availability issues after the maintenance window In light of the recent disclosure of the "Poodle" SSL vulnerability, LinkedIn is joining the large number of services that have actively removed support for SSLv3, effective immediately. If you are experiencing errors related to HTTPS-based communication with our APIs, please ensure you are using a client/library that supports TLS 1.0+ instead of SSLv3 to avoid disruption. Attention, developers! We have transitioned to StackOverflow for forum-based support. Learn more about this change.
Developer Perspective: Buffer
A few weeks ago we were excited to announce the opening of our Company Pages & Analytics APIs to our developer community. With these APIs, we've made it easy for developers to publish content to company pages as well as provide key analytics to their end users. One of our developers that saw immediate impact after integrating with these newly available APIs was Buffer. Over 1,000,000 people use Buffer to easily publish content on multiple platforms, including LinkedIn.
Buffer had previously integrated with LinkedIn to give their users the ability to post content to their network updates stream as well as their groups. One of the most sought after features from their user base was to also support the ability for LinkedIn Company Page admins to post updates. In fact, this was the second most requested feature by Buffer's users! As a result, the team over at Buffer was one of the first to integrate with the new APIs and officially launched company page support in early September 2013.
So far the results have been great for Buffer:
- Increase in Shares: In just a few weeks, Buffer has averaged 2,500 company updates a day to 1,100 company pages
- Paid Users Growth: Since the launch, Buffer has seen an increase in new paying users as many of their customers see the company page integration as a highly valuable business feature
Buffer is just one of many applications now taking advantage of what the Company Pages & Analytics APIs have to offer. Check out our documentation to get started integrating today and hop in our developer forums if you have any questions!
