How to send a private message to Facebook friends

Recently Facebook added the SEND button (http://developers.facebook.com/blog/post/494/). I believe this enables sending private messages to the Facebook friends of a user. My questions is:

a) Can we have our own dialog box when the user clicks on the SEND button?
b) This will also imply that there is a way to send a private message to your friends programmatically using the graph API.
c) So, can we send a private message to a number of my friends?

I am confused. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

to quote from the link you provided:

"Also, we strongly recommend using Open Graph meta tags on your web pages to control the title, description and image displayed when people use the Send button."  
See the opengraph documentation  http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraph/

b) This will also imply that there is a way to send a private message to your friends programmatically using the graph API.
I haven't found this way yet, maybe there is.

c) So, can we send a private message to a number of my friends?
you can group your friends into meaningful lists and send to the list.
you can send to a facebook group that you are a member of.
