LinkedIn Groups and a New BETA!

Hey Everyone, been working hard on two versions of! First, I found out that LinkedIn Groups have been added to LinkedIn's API. So I wanted to add that to the plugin as soon as possible. It is in the latest release version of the plugin (version 1.3.12) as well as the latest version of the beta (2.0.0b3). It is also still a little experimental. I've tested it to the best of my ability, and for some reason the LinkedIn developers made the API a little different from the regular sharing API. So you may see it a little different. If you have any questions, contact me.

I've had a few people testing the BETA for me and the last version had a few big bugs that needed to be squashed. I believe it is getting much more stable now, so I released a new version of the BETA, available here. It would be great if any of you had the time to test it. I think you'll be much happier with this version. If I do not get any negative feedback, I will make this version the next release of the plugin.

I've also been getting a lot of questions about Google+. Yes, Google+ is on my radar :)... they killed the Buzz API a few months ago, but still haven't opened up the Google+ API for posting. Currently it only support read-only requests. As soon as I find out that they've opened it up for posting, I'll be adding it to the service. Hopefully it's coming real soon!

Again, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me.

    This might help, re-Google+ [link redacted]

      Hi Linda,

      Thanks for the link. For security and best practice reasons, we do not ever want to store someones username/password in any database. We’ll just have to wait for Google to open up the Google+ API for writes via oAuth (like the other support social networks). I personally feel like it’s the best and most secure option for our users.

      Thanks though!
