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

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 Photobucket

Social Media Monitoring

On social media people often let the images do the talking. With Photobucket you can search images with specific keywords to make sure you're monitoring all relevant content.

Business Intelligence

What does it mean for your business when images are uploaded to Photobucket? Are the images of a live event positive or are they negative? Without ingesting the raw data into your system you may never know.


Getting photographs from Photobucket can help you inform nearly every department in your company. There are obvious uses like in marketing and customer service to not-so-obvious uses in sales and product development.

Sources Similar to Photobucket

Instagram is the largest photo sharing service in the world. The photos and associated data returned from Instagram are very similar to that of Photobucket, and in both APIs you can search for images with specific keyword tags.

Tweets include much more than 140 characters these days and one of the most popular items to add onto a Tweet is an image. With our API you can even filter all Tweets to receive only Tweets with a media items attached.

Flickr is a photo storing, sharing, and discovery service. The photos and associated data returned from Flickr are very similar to that of Photobucket and Instagram, with Flickr's API you can search for images with specific keyword tags.

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.
