In the past,
I had a script, this script updated my facebook status from within irssi by using a POST request to the facebook main site. Unfortunately this does not work anymore. Partly because this style of scripting is against the facebook TOS(Terms of Service).
As I wanted to continue to be able to update my facebook status from within irssi, but also be compliant to the facebook TOS i decided to create a script that uses the facebook API.
