How to connect to Facebook to perform background tasks

Mar 3, 2010 at 8:19 PM

I basically am building a Windows service that will regularly look at our Facebook app's database and do things like increment counters or post news to users.

In version 2 of the toolkit, this kinda thing seemed simple: I created a FacebookService object, gave it my app's API key and secret, and then called the appropriate function like notifications.send back when notifications were around.

I am trying to upgrade my service to version 3 of the toolkit and have run into a roadblock: the FacebookService object no longer has a Secret property.

Am I missing something?  Was I always doing it the "wrong" way and is there a better way to do this?

PS - maybe I need to be using Connect now.

I tried this:

but I am getting invalid signature errors...

Never mind - the other post was 100% right.  I just had the wrong key in there...  ugh.
