Delicious Data Access

Social bookmarking data is a great source of information about how content is saved and shared. With Delicious you can receive a whole firehose of social bookmarks or search the tags for specific keywords you're interested in and receive only that data. As with all of our Data Collector sources, the data will be returned in a normalized format with language detection and other enrichments.

Data Collector

Connect to multiple public APIs simultaneously with a single connection to Gnip. You select the sources, we will collect the data, enrich it, and pass it along to you. Simplify your access and save on scarce engineering resources.


Format Normalization

Want to use just one parser to consume all of your data? Activity Streams format from Gnip enables you to consume all of your data in a single standardized format across all of our data sources.


Dedicated Support Team

We offer technical onboarding, technical documentation, code snippets and libraries on GitHub, and rapid support response during business hours with 24/7 emergency response to ensure your success.


Duplicate Exclusion

Gnip eliminates duplicates within each stream so you'll only receive each activity once. This is particularly useful for polling-based streams where the original source may deliver the same activity multiple times.


Optimized Polling

Tired of trying to keep up with changing rate limits, API latency, and other factors that limit the effectiveness of your polling? Gnip optimizes the polling for each API to ensure that you get the most data you can.


Choice of Protocols

Whether you choose to access your data in the publisher's original format or in Activity Streams format, Gnip can deliver your data to you in the protocol of your choice: HTTP GET, HTTP POST, or Streaming HTTP


Plug & Play Streams

The Data Collector provides a single point of integration that supports up to six interchangeable realtime public API streams from our wide variety of supported social networks.

Industries Using Delicious

Social Media Monitoring

While there are common ways for people to share links such as Twitter and Tumblr sometimes people are sharing links in other ways. Often the only way to find those URLs being shared is to get them from a bookmarking service.

Business Intelligence

Just like tracking every social activity is critical for social media monitoring, tracking every social activity is critical for business intelligence success. Finding correlations in social bookmarks could lead to an epiphanal moment.


People are using Delicious to bookmark their URLs to easily store and share links but you can use Delicious data to understand mentions of your brand and find trends in what content is being saved.

Sources Similar to Delicious

While delicious data allows you to determine what people are bookmarking to share there is another way to get that type of data, find what has been shared. People frequently share links on Google+.

With our PowerTrack product you can filter the entire firehose of Twitter data to only receive Tweets that share a link. Finding the data around what links people are sharing has never been easier.

Not only is Facebook the largest social network but it is a place where people are sharing their thoughts and links. Getting Facebook data is a great way to get the opinion along with the link shared.

Success Stories

I absolutely love Gnip's API design. Very universal which saves hours of work on my side.

Addictive Mobility

Gnip allows businesses to focus on reaping social data insight, rather than tracking which services are hot, which are not, and which have changed their API policies.
