Brightkite API Beta Available

July 10th, 2008

Brightkite is all about sharing your location and meeting new people based on the places you visit, and the latest way of doing that is with the Brightkite API. Using the Brightkite API you can add a location component to any site, social network, or application.

We are looking for developers interested in helping us beta test the Brightkite API. If you would like access to our API please send a request to api@brightkite.com. The API documentation is now publicly available at here .

We are excited about the potential mashups and third party integrations. One of the very first sites to integrate the Brightkite API is Socialthing!. Socialthing! is a terrific app that lets you see everything that is going on with your friends from all the sites you use, all in one spot. We are really excited about Socialthing implementing our API. If you haven’t checked it out yet, we highly recommend you do.

Congrats on the API! It will be super exciting to see what creative uses developers dream up for it. A bit of geeky question, but are you using OAuth for authentication?
