Sorry, the Facebook API doesn't allow it (privacy reasons).

This may seem like a stupid question, but what is the reason for not allowing one to programatically retrieve a friend's friends list when it is possible to do so through the Facebook website (for those who allow public browsing of friends)?

that was exactly my point. i can go to any one of my friends and view their friends. this woudl imply the API should provide the same capability. at the same time, if the user's permissions allow it, i should be aloud to poke/send mesasages to them as well.

however, i guess i can see how one can abuse this and produce some mass spaming/poking.
