This is a very simple way to get the latest posts from a facebook fan page. I previously wrote a VERY simple guide that just returns the latest single post (as this is all people want a lot of the time). If that is what you are looking for read this guide instead.

Also, this code will filter out things posted on your wall by other people and display ONLY things the owner of the facebook page posted.
