This is definitely the moment everybody’s waiting for especially the developers who are eager to come up with apps that’ll make use of the Meme API.

Yahoo offers it Meme open API built on top of Yahoo! Query Language (YQL) platform which will provide the ability to show information related to Meme users—basically their content. Like other APIs, it utilizes OAuth as a mechanism for authorized access to the content they produce. The entire suite of Meme YQL tables allows you to perform actions such as read, publish, repost, follow, unfollow, comment and delete which was also offered on the Meme site.

It’s mobile version for smartphones according to Yahoo was built using Meme’s API. Though Meme is getting some attention in some selected countries including the Philippines, it seems that Yahoo hasn’t figure out which model works best.

The question now leads us to ask if there would be a lot of third party developers who are willing to jump into this Meme bandwagon. What do you think?

    That’s the reason when I visited your blog last time, I thought I was on a different blog. I look forward to your blog’s new home.

    Sorry if I have to change the name field, I was just a little bit uncomfortable about it. I hope you understand.

    I just wrote a post about Meme as well and started using it here and there, only problem I see there is that there’s really no one else there and no apps for Meme yet. It’s kind of boring.

    The number of users it have is one of the strongest factor that will decide its fate. It will only boost in number only if Yahoo wants to and if they exert much effort on it but it seems that they’re not giving much support to it especially in matters of promotion and resources.

    I doesn’t amaze me to hear that it was boring out there. You can only see what’s latest on the homepage but that’s just about it. How I wish they could provide a functionality similar to Yahoo Messenger wherein you’ll know who’s online and who’s not.

    Thank you for dropping by Extreme John!
