[wp-hackers] Facebook Events Integration

I've already made the Facebook application ... the problem comes when trying
to post data from WordPress TO the Facebook application.  All data must be
posted from a machine with a valid (authenticated) session ID.  I can't
authenticate WordPress as a Facebook user, so while the data is sent,
Facebook will ignore it.

You probably will need to make a Facebook application in order to do 
things in Facebook from WordPress. There's quite a bit of 
documentation on how to do that, such as their official site:
Or try Google. There are a ton of tutorials out there.

I'm sure there's some kind of a FB integration WP plugin out there 
that you could look at to get started too?
