Hello everyone,

Recently I had a use-case to implement the Linkedin Connect with Appcelerator SDK, but unfortunately I’m unable to find the any plug-in or module to do that. I was already using one Titanium widget called social.js which is used to connect with twitter, though Twitter and Linkedin uses OAuth for the Authentication I planned to make some modifications on the Social.js, you can find the modified social.js CommonJS module here ( Require this module and you can easily authenticate with Linkedin and Twitter as well, by that you can post the contents to Linkedin and Twitter. Use the following code after importing social.js in your code base.

this social.js module is commonjs pattern so just require it by

    How do I get the user email from linkedin and twitter?

    • Moussa Sarr

      I have been asking the same question for so long now but either no one knows or people do not want to answer

  • Ravindra Chaitanya Prasad Mukk

    Hi Ram, I tried the process what you mentioned above. But still I am getting an error like below :

    ERROR] : Social.js: FAILED to getRequestToken!

    [ERROR] : oauth_problem=timestamp_refused&oauth_acceptable_timestamps=1443531929%2B-900

    When I launch the application I got an error alert with a message “Did not get access token now” and from there application is not working. Can you share the possible solution for this. Is there any other way to share data on linkedin with out using social.js

    • Did you try this :

      Because of the API update of linkedIn you need to modify the URL on line 724

      from: requestToken : “”,

      to: requestToken : “”,

      Also adjust the permissions in the linkedin app.

    • Ramkumar Murugadoss

      @ravindrachaitanyaprasadmukk:disqus can you check the timezone settings (and time settings) of your mobile.. The oAuth fails if the timezone mismatches with your mobile and data timezone.. Kindly try and let me know..

  • Moussa Sarr
