FBConect

Hello,

I am new with JavaScripts and APIs and I am creating a local project on my coputer in my visual studio. My ultimate goal is to create adn test Facebook Login and log out functionality.

I went to Facebook site on this URL:
http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/javascript/

and they have given some code block:
<div id="fb-root"></div>
<script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js"></script>
<script>
  FB.init({
    appId  : 'YOUR APP ID',
    status : true, // check login status
    cookie : true, // enable cookies to allow the server to access the session
    xfbml  : true  // parse XFBML
  });
</script>

Here, they are talking about AppID. Well with this local project, what would be my AppID?

... and this can help you with your problem if you're using ASP.NET. But it still discussed the processed very well so if you use a different language, it can still help you understand the process:

You still need an APP ID for it. :)

Well, one question while I am going through the documentation. I think it is leaning towards all the essentails towards creating an App for the Facebook environment.

What  I am trying to do here is : When  a user shares something from his site on Facebook, a new tab will open and ask user to llog on. Once user successfully logs on, the link is shared on the Facebook.

Now, I just wanted to make sure that his account is not in the Logged On and I wanted little bit control to log the user out.

Do I really need App ID for this? That tells me that in this case, every site who has facility to share something on Facebook , should have have an App ID? Even though it is not a facebook app and just a static site?
