facebook and wcf service on Azure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Folks,

    I have a WCF service hosted on Azure, this is a REST based service accessed from Android devices. I have a requirement to pull user profile information from Facebook profile, friends, wall information, user posts, etc.  In addition, the devices send user activity to the service and I need to push this information to Facebook. The user might want to share, email, etc.

    Is there any SDK I can use to achieve this from WCF services hosted on Azure?

    Regards,

    Vikram

  • Facebook provides its own Open Graph API which has API methods for many of the features you mentioned above. You need to code against this API to achieve the end result.

  • Hi Vikram,
    you can use facebook c# sdk that is a wrapper around Facebook api, it allows you to create web, desktop, phone and windows store applications and saves you plumbing code
    Source code for the sdk can be downloaded from the github repository https://github.com/facebook-csharp-sdk/
    you can use the assemblies by following direction on the website http://facebooksdk.net/
    it is now available as a nuget package.
     
    I hope this helps
