How to differentiate between facebook application being used from facebook or direct from hosting server

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a facebook application but want to differentiate between users accessing the application from facebook as opposed to users going directly to http://www.example.com/AppFolder, for example.  Also, if a user is using the application from facebook, can I get their user and age without having to log them in again?
