Announcing Google+ Identity Lookup

Since launching the new API in May we're already seeing substantial growth and adoption. Developers are enjoying fantastic low-latency and stability thanks to our more robust backend, and we are hard at work to deliver new features. Today I'm happy to announce that you can now lookup users by their Google+ ID. This marks the first new network we've implemented for lookup in the API and will allow developers to find the top Google+ influencers that have registered with Klout. It's available to all developers using the V2 API.

It's easy to work with, following the pattern we defined for Identity lookups:

http://api.klout.com/v2/identity.json/gp/{id}

In return, you'll get back a kloutId, which you can use to lookup a user's score, topics, and influencers. You can give it a whirl in our Interactive Documentation.

We're looking forward to the new integration possibilities this allows! Speaking of which, we've got a great way for you to share those...
