New Facebook API tool for .NET

 Don't waste your time with open source projects that aren't supported, lack documentation and require guessing games to implement. 

Try out a fresh, clean and simple alternative to work with Facebook from your own website or application.

Branches FBAPI:
  • Easy to use 
  • Strongly typed to make debugging easier.
  • Use it in any .NET project or langauge, (VB, C#, etc) from the 2.0 framework and up.
  • Supports most major graph api functions
  • Supported and maintained as the graph changes in the future.

Provides built in mechanism to validate users on your ASP.NET site without having to fiddle with httpRequests, formatting and cryptic messages.
