What you are talking about doing is basically akin to recreating a web browser. It can also be called "screen scraping." You would want to look at classes under the System.Web and System.Net . Specifically, the HttpWebRequest and HttpWebResponse classes. You might be able to use the WebClient class instead of the above two classes, though.

I have to forewarn you:  Facebook uses a lot of Javascript, and you'll probably have a tough time handling all of the Javascript tricks that they use to serve their pages. It would probably be more worthwhile to investigate their APIs. I haven't worked with any of their APIs, so I'm afraid I cannot advise on that. Feel free to wait for additional responses.

Thanks.

I know about API. But, I am willing to develop a kind of agent that will keep working with user's profile all the time even he/she is online or offline. Any idea, what sort of application it is called if it is possible. For example: Application that will show weather of user's region on its profile page or on timeline even he/she is online or offline. Is it possible to make something like that -  a kind of agent.. I hope, u get what I mean.

Thanks
