ContextVoice is an API that tracks comments from social sites around a URL close to real-time.

If a certain story, picture or video gets shared on social sites, ContextVoice gets the mentions and comments from those social sites around that specific story, picture or video.

The ContextVoice API is RESTful and provides responses in both XML and JSON formats.

You can use the API to:

* Send ContextVoice a URL (or batch of URLs) you want to track
* get comments around a specific URL ContextVoice is already tracking.

ContextVoice tracks comments on the following services:

* Major blogging platforms (Wordpress, Blogger, Typepad, MovableType)
* Microblogging platforms (Twitter)
* Lifestreaming services (FriendFeed)
* Social news sites (Digg, Reddit, HackerNews)
* Social bookmarking sites (Del.icio.us)
* Videosharing sites (YouTube, Vimeo)
* Photosharing sites (Flickr, Picasa)
