Google adds an API for apps – but study suggests 40% fall in use

Google+ has launched an API that should allow developers to write third-party apps that will be able to post and read directly to the service – a move that may be sorely needed, after an independent study suggested that the number of posts to the service has fallen by over 40% in the past two months.Google+ – also known as Google Plus – was launched at the end of June to a limited user group as the search engine giant’s riposte to the successes of Facebook, which refuses to let it index all of its content, and Twitter, which has ended a contract whereby Google could index tweets and make them available in search results.
