I am looking for a way to retrieve my company's Facebook "fan page" news feed listing and display it in a gridview.  I have tried to scrape the RSS xml from asp.net but Facebook redirects me to another page, not allowing me to grab the info from the RSS.  Does anyone know how I can accomplish grabbing my company's facebook fan page news feed and listing it in a gridview? I have looked around for samples but I'm having trouble finding any.  

Thanks for your help.

Ok what I am looking to do is retrieve posts from a fan page to display on the company's website.  The Facebook widget is too clunky so I would rather retrieve the company's fan page data and load it in a gridview to display on the company's website.   This is not something that the user can "authenticate" for because I want to show the company's fan page posts in a datagrid to run on that same company's website.
