Access Facebook Wall/Profile without password.

I have web design clients insisting their viewers be able to use a 'Find us on Facebook' image link to access the client's Facebook Profile without name/password. If I have a Facebook account/profile I can access other Facebook Profile/Wall pages.

Without a Facebook account, visitors will have limited access - essentially an invitation to open 'Join' a Facebook account.

So then, is it true that I must have a Facebook account to have write access (Wall) to any other Facebook account. including groups. Otherwise I may be able to view limited data and have no way to post items/comments.

Google search yields many responses, but no definitive answer to above.

failing that then the clients will surely have to accept that someone needs to login or create a facebook account. facebook have created security settings for a reason.

Am I right in saying your client wants anybody to access their wall? doesnt facebook have security settings which allow who can view and post what including security settings?

rockiroads is correct.
Explain to your clients that their Viewers CAN use a 'Find us on Facebook' link with absolutely no problems.  It is THEN up to the Viewer to determine if they would like to join Facebook to look at your clients Facebook page.   End of your control.


 Facebook is a closed system meant for traffic to go through them so that Facebook can make money off YOUR traffic.
Hopefully, you have created and are maintaining a REAL website for these Clients.
