Hello all,

I use West Wind Internet And Client Tools from Rick Strahl.

I guess that I should be able to access Facebook using wwHttp. I use wwHttp for contacting Twilio with Rest. I'm wondering how different it can be accessing Twilio with REST and accessing Facebook with REST.

Anyone can share informations on how to post or get data from Facebook using Visual FoxPro?

You'll need to use FaceBook's API which requires oAuth authorization.

There are link based options for creating a new post (sharer.php), but you have to be in the current user context. For an example of what that looks like go to my block and click on the Facebook link to share the link on your timeline.

Weblog Post

You can look at the URL to get an idea how that works. It's ugly - clearly Facebook doesn't want this to be used 😄 - they want users to sign up for their APIs.
