Hi KodeX,

 

To follow up, the Spring 12 release of Chatter is expected to have support for "bookmarking" feed items in the UI and the Chatter REST API. The preview doc for the release is here https://na1.salesforce.com/help/doc/en/salesforce_spring12_release_notes.pdf and the preview documentation for the Chatter REST API is here: http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/chatterapipre/index.htm

 

In particular, when using v24 URLs, the /chatter/feed-items/<id> resource now allows a PATCH to set isBookmarkedByCurrentUser, the feed item  response body includes isBookmarkedByCurrentUser, and you can retrieve a feed of all the bookmarked feed items for the context user at /chatter/feeds/bookmarks/me and /chatter/feeds/bookmarks/me/feed-items

 

Cheers,

- Chris

Hi Devendra,

 

The Chatter API gives you high level access to the same presentation-level data shown in the Chatter UI. 

 

The Chatter API is described here: http://wiki.developerforce.com/page/Chatter_API

 

There's a video from Dreamforce about it last year here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9j7XYMt9AY

 

The documentation for the current release is here: http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/chatterapi/index.htm

 

The code for an iOS sample app is here: https://github.com/cseymourSF/Chatter-API-iOS-Sample

 

Cheers,
