Technically, API stands for Application Programming Interface. It allows connection between servers to ensure that we can access all the features and data from another point.

In Mention, we provide a public API to access your data and integrate them in your website or application. Our API lists a bunch of operations that developers can use, along with a description of what they do.

Mention is designed as a REST API with multiple clients (web, iOS, and Android). With the API, you can integrate Mention into your own website or application with your own layout and managing rights. You can also use the API as an intelligent crawler with its output going into your own workflow/system.

Mention cannot distribute the full content of certain mentions via the Mention API:

★ Twitter

Mention has the ability to fetch the Twitter ID and URL of tweets that match your alert's keywords. If you would like to fetch additional metadata for Twitter and combine it with your application from Mention, please check out the Mention API documentation for insight on Twitter Metadata.

★ Facebook & Instagram

Mention will fetch the Facebook or Instagram ID of posts that are brought into your account.

If you would like to fetch Metadata for these sources, you will need to use the Facebook API. Please make sure that you have a previous validation of the use case/application by Facebook. You will need to grant your Page Public Content Access, after your use case or application has been validated by Facebook. Then you can get the data from the mentions by using the endpoint https://graph.facebook.com/{id}.

👉 You can find our detailed documentation here: Mention API documentation.

This service has an extra cost.
