First of all, congratulations on a very smart and useful project!
Many users raise exceptions when the UserParser is called for them.. First of all, you try to cast PoliticalView on a field that is a text field.. (My political view on facebook is "if they made me president for one day they would see the difference"
:P ) I also wrapped the code below NetworkParser in try catch because it also raised exceptions...
And now a question... Why is the test application running sooooooooo slow? My pc is more than capable of running many things :D and nothing else was taking resources from my internet connection... Can I do something to speed it up?
