LinkedIn today launched a set of powerful APIs to access the rich information about Companies and Jobs on LinkedIn. "This'll enable app developers to bring even more LinkedIn insights to company content and job opportunities to our members, wherever they want to see them," said LinkedIn.
"LinkedIn's company pages contain rich profile and product data for more than 2 million small and large businesses. Imagine an email application allowing you to lookup the company that the sender works for, with a rich display of company information, further linking to people who you know at that company. Think of an innovative mobile app that enables you to search across company profiles by industry, location, size, and more."
