Woefully off Topic

Having been impressed with the capabilities and ease of use of the Tweetinvi API I have been less impressed with how quick it is to get up and running with Facebook interfaces.

One problem is that I am using a c# desktop application, another is that it needs to run on Window7. Facebook interface support is reasonably targetted at Mobile and Web apps and the .Net Desktop libraries are geared towards Windows 8.

So, apologies for writing what appears to be a Facebook related question in a Twitter API forum but I write it here on the assumption that most developers would like to interface with both platforms from their applications.

If anyone can recommend a Facebook library/interface/API for .net which, in particular would allow postings to a facebook account to be notified to the application I would be interested to hear.

I have personally used Facebook API in PHP and Javascript but never C#.
Though if you go on http://facebooksdk.net it looks like a good API that is compatible with .NET Framework 3.5 to 4.5, as well with WP and WinRT.

Is this library not good enough for what you want to do?

It may be - I think the problem is that the samples seem to be for Window 8.1, and most are for Windows Store Apps - so getting a handle on the APIs and trying to work out how to receive notifications is not as straight forward as I had hoped. Also from what I can tell, none of the samples demonstrate what I want to do either.

I will have to investigate the APIs some more,
