This chapter serves as a guide to interact with some of the most popular social media with Python using requests. We started by learning about the definition and importance of an API in the real world. Then we interacted with some of the most popular social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook and reddit. Each section about a social network will provide a hands on experience using a limited set of examples.
In the next chapter, we are going to learn step by step about Web scraping with requests and BeautifulSoup libraries.
