Well, its been a busy couple of weeks lately so I haven’t had a chance to update the blog recently. Lots of cool things have been happening at Osnapz, here’s a recap of some of the latest.

  • Added a list of Top Foursquare Users, which ranks foursquare users by # of friends and mayorships, filterable by city.  Blocks of users are updated every few minutes to keep the list up to date.  The list is monitoring almost 30,000 foursquare users now, and adding more all the time!
  • Techcrunch did a write up of the top foursquare user’s list on 12/3.  Funny how it turned out to be an article about the most stalker-friendly people on the web.  Thanks for the write-up MG!
  • Both foursquare and Twitter have white listed Osnapz, so that Osnapz can make lots of API calls to keep all our member data and stats up-to-date
  • Updated the top foursquare users list to also rank users by # of checkins, checkin days, and venues visited.  This is only for Osnapz members who’ve linked their foursquare account though.
  • Had to disable YouTube integration for now, because I was previously using Google’s AuthSub for authentication, which had problems.  I attempted to switch to using OAuth, but haven’t managed to get it working yet, so till that’s figured out, YouTube will be disabled.  Members who already have YouTube badges won’t be affected.
  • Working currently on adding LinkedIn, since they recently opened up their API to all developers!
  • Working on a really cool new feature to display your true social media score!
