Understand concepts

This document introduces Kakao Story APIs and their features.

Overview

Kakao Story is a social networking service where users can write or share a story. A story refers to a post that contains text, images or a link. You can use Kakao Story APIs when you need to implement services related to Kakao Story, such as posting, retrieving, or deleting stories in Kakao Story.

You can call Kakao Story APIs only when a user is logged in to Kakao and uses Kakao Story. Before using Kakao Story APIs, check if the user's currently logged-in account is using Kakao Story by calling the Validating Kakao Story user API.

Here are the functions of Kakao Story APIs.

Name Description
Validating Kakao Story user Checks if the user who is currently logged in is a Kakao Story user.
Retrieving Kakao Story profile Retrieves Kakao Story user profile information.
Posting story Posts a new story on Kakao Story.
Retrieving story Retrieves story information.
Deleting story Deletes a specific story.

Is the Kakao Story profile different from the Kakao Talk profile?

Yes. Kakao Story and Kakao Talk have separate profile information. Users can set their desired profile nicknames and images for Kakao Story, Kakao Talk, and Kakao Account respectively. Therefore, we provide different Retrieving profile APIs, and the profile information obtained through each API is different.
