Facebook offers real-time feed of user data to online and TV news | PCWorld: "Facebook revealed a new tool that enables news organisations to tap into user comments and display them online or on TV in real-time.
The social network launched two tools on Monday, the Keyword Insights API (application programming interface) and the Public Feed API, it said in a blog post.
The Public Feed API displays a real-time feed of public posts for a specific word, while the Keyword Insights API aggregates the total number of posts that mention a specific term in a given period, Facebook said.
The keyword API is also able to display anonymous, aggregated results based on gender, age and location, the company added. A TV show can for instance use this option to include how many people on Facebook talked about a topic and show where they are located while showing if it is most popular among men or women and in which age groups, Facebook said." http://newsroom.fb.com/News/706/New-Tools-for-Surfacing-Conversations-on-Facebook
