Update Facebook status with PHP and cURL

Christian Flickinger wanted to be able to sync status updates between his Twitter and Facebook accounts, so that when his status is updated on Twitter, his Facebook status is automatically updated at the same time. Unfortunately, Facebook didn’t have an API for setting status, so Christian decided to hack his own using PHP and cURL.

With a few lines of code, his script will authenticate with Facebook account and update its status. It’s a simple script you can incorporate into your own project to sync your status to anything – Link.
