Is this programtically feasible?

    Facebook provides API for accessing your pages' timeline. We have seen programming code for accessing API and get token with Facebook developer app. The problem lies in user authentication. It shows login page at the time of initial API request and is a hindrance.

    Is it feasible to seamlessly access own pages' timeline on facebook and post a message programmatically? If yes can someone post the web-based application code (javascript or c# or php) or link to the working code. Is it possible without using Facebook libraries?

    Please note, I am not saying to access and post on other facebook users' timeline but our own.

    So you want to write a spam script w/o authentication? good luck. J/K, it *WAS* possible, but FB put a stop to it.

    NO. I donot think I want to post SPAM on my own page.
    Programmers & developers please read the my initial message and post comments.

    Sorry, but what you are asking for in terms of functionality is blocked BECAUSE spammers could so easily use and abuse it. That's why the extra login page is there in the first place... along with all the other cross-site blocks designed to prevent hacking, cracking, spamming and abuse.

    Hence why @digdan is completely right, it WAS possible, and it was killed off for a REASON. What you are asking for was a bad idea in the first place, and is blocked/nonexistent now for a damned good reason, and don't expect it to come back, or to get a whole lot of help from people who know what they're talking about...

    ... as they know better. You're basically asking how to bypass a security measure; don't expect a friendly reaction to that in a non black-hat forum. You want to pull that type of stunt, you'll have to go ask on the deep web, and be prepared for any answer you get to work for a couple weeks, and then for FB to blacklist you!

    (assuming you can find an answer between all the kiddie porn and illegal weapon/drug sales that make up the majority of deep web activity)

    It's not possible without going through oAuth, but it is possible using the user's session - which they would have to manually insert or enter into your app (e.g., they enter in the token string that represents them during that fb login session). It's complicated, and it may not 100% work all the time.

    Imagine if you created a page with some really cool giveaway, porn or video and you managed to get some traffic to it.
    Your script would be able to post to the visitors newsfeed without the visitor knowing.
    Facebook, understandably, don't allow that.
    Now, your intention might be honorable but every time someone comes up with something cool you can be sure there'll be a spammer/scammer watching and thinking about how it can be used to spam/scam.

    It's a bit like me saying "oh no, my dog won't kill wildlife so he should be allowed off leash".
    Unless you know that 100% of dogs are ok, the rules will prevent 100% of dogs being offleash.
