LinkedIn data transfer program
We are a specialized social networking application for businesses and want to provide our users an easy way to take the content of their existing account in LinkedIn and copy that data to Xeequa.
Data means personal profile information as well as profile information from confirmed connections of the particular user.
A registered Xeequa user shall be able to grab data from their official LinkedIn account and copy it to Xeequa. We will need a page within Xeequa, where the user enters the user ID and password from LinkedIn to access LinkedIn and than the process crawles the page to get the data over to Xeequa.
We provide a more specific definition of the fields such as profile, background, photo, from the user or name, profile, background, photo, email address from the respective connection upon request and obviously if you are the selected provider.
As there is no well defined API for LinkedIn, the crawler need to automatically read the respective page and than crawl into the necessary pages from the confirmed connections.
What we expect:
1) A page where the user can enter the username and password of his LinkedIn account. This should be ideally in Coldfusion or we will create the respective Coldfusion page.
2) A crawler program that grabs the specified data and stores it into a dedicated table in MYSQL.
The result will than be taken by us and integrated into the Xeequa database, you don;t have to worry about our data model.
We are only interested in provider with experience in crawler development.
