What's That Social is an API that makes it extremely simple to enrich your data with social network info. Just pass it a first name, last name and a company name (optional) and we'll find that person's LinkedIn profile for you.

It is implemented right into Scrapely and it can be used in your own app, Google Drive, your CRM, you name it.

What's That Social is the perfect addition to your Growth Hacking Toolbox. Getting someone's email address is easy, but manually finding their social profiles in order to get their email address is hard. We'll help you automate that.

General

What is What's That Social

What's That Social is an API to help you find someone's LinkedIn profile. You send someone's first name, last name and company name (optional), and you'll get their LinkedIn profile back.

Why can I only log in with LinkedIn?

To make sure people don't create fake accounts just to get free credits, this seemed the best option.

The only data we get from LinkedIn are your first name, last name and email address. This is only used for authenticating you, and is not shared with third parties or through the What's That Social API.

What's a credit

A credit is the currency of What's That Social. Every time you send a request to the API and you get a LinkedIn profile back, you pay a credit. If you didn't get a LinkedIn profile back, you don't pay a credit.

You get 500 credits for free when you create your account. You can buy more credits in your dashboard. If for some reason you can't buy credits at this moment, just send me a message on Facebook and we'll work something out.

How much do credits cost

There are 3 packs of credits:

  • Starter Pack: 500 credits for €10
  • Medium Pack: 1500 credits for €20
  • Growth Hacker Pack: 10000 credits for €75

This is not a subscription service.

Payments are processed securely and encrypted through Stripe. No payment data is saved on or ever touches the What's That Social servers.

API Specific

Getting started

The What's That Social API is very easy to use. To find someone's LinkedIn profile you send a GET request to the following endpoint: https://whatsthatsocial.com/api/linkedin with the following URL parameters.

  • first_name: The first name of the person (string)*
  • last_name: The last name of the person (string)*
  • token: Your WTS token (string)*
  • company: The company of the person (string)

Example: https://whatsthatsocial.com/api/linkedin?token=API_TOKEN
&first_name=Jeff
&last_name=Weiner
&company=LinkedIn

Responses

The responses are in JSON format. As long as nothing goes wrong server-side, you'll get back a 200 status code.

Response when the profile was successfuly found

{
    "data": {
        "first_name": "Jeff",
        "last_name": "Weiner",
        "profile": "https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeffweiner08"
    },
    "message": "c",
    "status": "success"
}
                        

Response when the profile was not found (but you still have enough credits). There are several reasons why it couldn't find a profile. Maybe they don't have a LinkedIn account. Or they obfuscate their last name on Facebook (a few people do that these days).

{
    "data": {
        "first_name": "Jeff",
        "last_name": "Weiner",
        "profile": null
    },
    "message": "Could not find Linkedin Profile.",
    "status": "error"
}
                        

Response when you don't have enough credits.

{
    "data": {
        "first_name": "Jeff",
        "last_name": "Weiner",
        "profile": null
    },
    "message": "You have no credits left. Add more credits
                on https://whatsthatsocial.com",
    "status": "error"
}
