Help connecting to facebook from outside apps.facebook

I have a working website, written in ASP.NET, located in .

I decided to add a feature that causes facebook news-feed publishing everytime you add a movie to my database.

When I connect to my application through facebook ( - it works perfectly.

Now, I'm trying to connect to a certain UID's account remotely, without loading facebook.

Is it even possible?


this is my chunk of code in charge of publishing: (not sure it's relevant)

        Dictionary<string, string> movieData =
           new Dictionary<string, string> { { "Grade", "" + p_Grade + "" }, { "MovieName", "" + p_EnglishName + "" }, { "Year", "" + p_Year + "" } };
        ((FacebookMaster)Page.Master).API.feed.publishUserAction(95804110431, movieData, null, null, feed.PublishedStorySize.OneLine);

well, this particular api is a session required api.  So, you would need to establish a valid session on behalf of the user you are trying to publish for.

As an alternative, you could look into stream.publish which you can do without a session.
