New Google Buzz API with firehose feature

According to google code blog a new feature called the Google Buzz firehose has been upgraded into the online tool.

With the firehose, all public activities are available as they are published with a single subscription, thanks to syndication via PubSubHubbub.

The blog says, “We’ve had some fun coming up with cool things to do with the firehose. For example, Bob Aman coded up Buzz Mood, an App Engine app inspired by Twistori. By scanning for posts that contain certain keywords, Bob’s able to give us a sense for the mood across all of Google Buzz in real time. Definitely take a look at the the source to get ideas for your own apps!”

Users can now make the best of newly assimilated features such as comments and likes by the user and shared counts. The first feature will record all those activities which users comment on. Every time users like a particular activity, it will be documented in the ‘likes by the user’ feed. Finally, the last attribute will keep a track of the number of times a particular URL is shared across the Buzz.

The Google Buzz API documentation site accounts these features in greater detail. It has also been announced that the developer forum will allow users to discuss these new elements. The blog further states that it will continue to enhance user experience with more advanced upgrades.
