Get latest status from facebook fan pages in PHP (part 2: multiple entries)

27 Dec

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. By popular demand I created this  additional tutorial that will show you how to display the latest 10 posts and display them with date.

I'm going to implement this in PHP and probably create a wordpress, drupal, and elgg plugin. However for now I'm going to create it using JavaScript / jQuery / JSON. This will allow me to create a quick functional prototype that should show if this is a practical method of stopping spam. In addition, I just want to explore the use of Flickr API in jQuery as I think it could have alot of pretty cool uses.
