Facebook Graph API

Facebook’s Graph API gives developers the ability to interact with Facebook social graph objects (people, photos, groups, events, pages, checkins, etc…) and easily retrieve public and/or private information but in order to retrieve private information your application would first need permission from the end user. The Facebook API also allows developers to publish content to the Facebook social graph, using this method your application can post a custom message to someones wall, create photo albums and upload photos, checkin to places, create events and much more.
