Re: [Flashcoders] Pulling data from social media

Instagram uses JSON formatting for their API too. Depending on the data you
want to retrieve, you may need to use OAuth. Fortunately they make it
pretty easy.

Have you considered using PHP to fetch the data you need, and then convert
it from JSON to XML? It may be easier to deal with.

Not really, JSON support is built into the Flash player, so can you convert 
from JSON to AS and back.


var data:Object = JSON.parse(jsonData);

where jsonData is a JSON formatted string.

Peter

I’m sorry I didn’t state my need better. I know that is what I’ll have to do 
with Twitter, but I’m not find how to access Pinterest and Instagram to pull 
the followers of a specific person on each site.

I really appreciate your comments…

Both have API's, so should be documented how to get the data you're after.
