Earlier this month, I was approached by a software company to assist writing a Facebook application. I hadn’t done this, however I have read about their powerful Graph API and was anxious to give it a shot. The first step was to learn to connect to the facebook API, which was greatly assisted by using the PHP SDK that has been written and released as open source. I’ll write a longer blog soon once I develop the application, but here’s the steps to begin writing your own external facebook application.
- Register your facebook application ( link )
- Download the Facebook PHP SDK (link)
