Facebook Development with the .NET Compact Framework

Facebook has become a huge phenomenon in social networking. The site exposes a developer API to support Web and desktop applications. In this article we will explore making use of this functionality from a smart device application. The source code to accompany this article demonstrates working with key aspects of the Facebook API and tightly integrating with Microsoft® Windows Mobile®–specific APIs.

The Facebook Development Toolkit, including the Facebook.Compact library and related samples, are located on CodePlex, Microsoft’s Shared Source hosting site, at http://www.codeplex.com/FacebookToolkit.
