Count Social Shares

No algorithm description given

Note:   Twitter support is no longer possible as they removed the share count endpoin t from the public API. Note:  Due to changes to the facebook API, the share, comment & like values may vary depending on individual user's privacy settings, the total number may be substantially higher than reported. Table of Contents Introduction Examples Credits Introduction Given a URL, returns the number of times that URL has been shared on various social media sites, currently facebook, pinterest, and linkedin. Facebook has more detailed information, including shares, comments, and likes, all others are just number of shares.  Please use the full http://.. syntax to ensure the best possible results. Input: (Required): Website URL. Output: Facebook like count.  (int) Facebook share count.  (int) Pinterest share count.  (int) Facebook comment count.  (int) LinkedIn share count.  (int) Examples Example 1. Parameter 1: Major website URL. "http://wikipedia.org" Output: {
 "facebook_likes": 32165,
 "facebook_shares": 18179,
 "pinterest": 5,
 "facebook_comments": 5586,
 "linkedIn": 1110
} Example 2. Parameter 1: Another major website URL. "http://buzzfeed.com" Output: {
 "facebook_likes": 340749,
 "facebook_shares": 197177,
 "pinterest": 15958,
 "facebook_comments": 61550,
 "linkedIn": 1553
} Credits This algorithm uses /util/Url2Text to scrape information from the Pinterest API , LinkedIn API , Facebook Graph API .

Internet access

This algorithm has Internet access. This is necessary for algorithms that rely on external services, however it also implies that this algorithm is able to send your input data outside of the Algorithmia platform.


Calls other algorithms

This algorithm has permission to call other algorithms. This allows an algorithm to compose sophisticated functionality using other algorithms as building blocks, however it also carries the potential of incurring additional royalty and usage costs from any algorithm that it calls.


To understand more about how algorithm permissions work, see the permissions documentation.
