getting group wall posts

Feb 28, 2010 at 8:12 PM

hi there,

we are creating a website that needs to get group posts and do actions with it...

in short, we want to display these posts, and we want to do some other things with them too (like give users in our site points for having posted messages on those facebook groups...)

we have a piece of code (for now just a webpage, for easy testing) that is sheduled to fetch group data day after day ...

for now its an asp.net website using this facebook developer toolkit.

we have the infinite session (which was a pain to get and i hope it keeps working)

but i have no clue how to fetch group data like posts.

 

there are not mutch examples going around the interwebs
thus i found how to get the basic stuff of these groups, like creator and description

but getting its member or posts is very hard to find tbh.

 

anyone got any clues how to start on this?

fdt mostly just wraps the Rest Api.  If you are curious how to do stuff, use http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/API.  There will be a corresponding function within the .Net Api.  To post on a group wall, you should use the stream.publish api call and include the id for the page.  It should be documented.  As for giving points...well, you know how to post now.........
