Alright, so I was hoping to build a facebook mashup that was beyond simply retrieving facebook photos and throwing them into another photo app block. However, I find that the facebook block that is provided isn't robust enough to do much else. My idea was something as simple as retrieving facebook wall posts from the profile page, selecing one at random, and then displaying it in a larger, prettier font.

Can someone tell me what I should do to capture wall posts (and, eventually, other facebook data)

Re: Advanced Facebook Mashup


At the moment user can't extend the Facebook block as it makes use of keys, hopefully with the next release we will mirroring more of the functionality provided by Facebook. Unfortunatley i don't believe Facebook expose the wall data, the docs are over at http://developers.facebook.com/documentation.php.

Thanks for the feedback, is there anything else you'd like to see in the Facebook block
