Please set the XID in your facebook app with developer on the admin panel...which can be called by

$facebook->api_client->comments_get('your_xid');

You can do this by FQL query as

SELECT xid, fromid, time, text, id FROM comment WHERE xid=your_xid

Please refer

http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/Comments.get

The another way is to get notification feed

http://www.new.facebook.com/feeds/notifications.php?id=your_facebook_id&viewer=your_facebook_id&key=your_internal_key&format=rss20

Please refer http://cummin.gs/?p=348=1

Hope this will help....

thanks,

Kalpan

Facebook, understandably, behaves with a proprietary view toward all of this data.  They change the format and content of outputs at will, which in a way makes sense - they may or may not own the data that is posted there (the courts will decide one day) and if you did not post the data, you almost certainly do not own the data.  So you have to be a little careful about how you access the data and what you do with it.  

If you find that you can read the information you want, but it is not coming out in a useful RSS format please post a  sample of the data you are getting and I will be glad to help you turn it into RSS.  If it works today and breaks tomorrow (that would not surprise me) you can always post a new question.  Good luck with your project, ~Ray

Hi Guys,
I was away few day.Apoligze didn't respond the comments.
We have a represantative from Facebook and she has mention that some companies are pulling out the comments via some tools.To be honest I haven't used the Facebook platform yet.I've tried to play arround but i think i still neeed to read the docs.
Have you come across with any tool or widgets that can pull the Facebook comments ?

Thanks

Hi Kalpan,

I think I couldn't explain it clearly.
What I want to do is get user comments @
:
http://www.facebook.com/twix.us?ref=ts

Under this link there are few posts and comments:

http://www.facebook.com/twix.us?ref=ts#/Twix?v=feed&story_fbid=268232610785

I want to pull those comments with RSS or any automated service.

Let me know if this is possible.

Regards

Mehmet

I was able to get to this page, whether I was logged in or not.

I could not get to this page, whether I was logged in or not (got redirected to the home or login page)

"I want to pull those comments with RSS or any automated service." - Facebook does not present comments in an RSS feed.  However if you are the owner of the page, you might be able to develop some kind of FB app that would get you the information.

In any case, it is an application development project of some size, and you would probably be best served by hiring an experienced application developer.

Best of luck with it, ~Ray
