DESCRIPTION

This plugin is just a prototype! It implements a very ugly and brittle mechanism for scraping a public facebook wall without requiring logging in to facebook. It works this week. It scrapes new posts and comments. It can only see the most recent 10 items or so, so if a page if a lot of comments are posted in a short amount of time, you will miss some posts.

WHY?

I do not have a facebook account, but I want to keep up with a few local businesses that provide updates online through facebook.
