This Facebook Graph PHP SDK supports the Graph API and Facebook Login. Because the GitHub documentation offers the open source PHP SDK, users will be able to access the platform in an existing PHP application. Test and contribution sections available. Created by Fosco Marotto.
During undergrad, I worked on a few side projects, with most of them using some sort of social-networking API. It was great learning some new skills and at the same time it was rewarding to tap into the vast networks of established sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Cue to postgrad and I had to complete a research component as part of my course requirements. With a nudge from my supervisor I asked the question: "Is it viable to have a generic social networking API? Will it be useful?"
The Facebook Wall has fallen. Actually, didn't the social network lose the "wall" when it launched Timeline last year? Nevertheless, the Facebook API still had access to post updates (assuming the user gave the app permission). Effective immediately, Facebook is removing access to the writable wall, pointing developers to two alternatives that lead to less spammy outcomes.
