Best way to get on Live Feed of user's friends

I have a Canvas IFrame app which I recently converted to use FDT 3.0 plus latest JSchuster patch 39697.

My goal is to promote my app virally to friends of the logged-in user by publishing something that will appear on the friends live feed, i.e. it is "in their face" on their initial facebook home page. Many other apps appear to be able to do this, eg. Mafia Wars etc.

I am using the API.Feed.PublishUserAction method to publish one-line stories at the moment. This used to have the desired result, but I think facebook changed their policy and now this type of publication will only appear on the user's wall and not on their friends live feed. I think maybe if the friend has allowed my app then they will see on their feed.

My question is what is the best way to achieve this goal and what can I use in the FDT 3.0 to achieve this? Please help.
