How send this HTTP command using VB2010

Hello all
I'm very new to Visual Basic and I would just like to create a Private sub that when I call from another part of the programme is simply sends out this HTTP post,
 that's all it is to do nothing else, I do not need to read anything or do anything else just return.
is there a nice simple way of achieving this I've looked at Google for the last three or four hours and I am lost.
Any help would be much appreciated

First of all: Should it really be a POST or a GET?

Use a WebRequest.


Imports System.Net

Module Module1

    Sub Main()

        Dim myWebRequest As WebRequest = WebRequest.Create("")
        myWebRequest.Method = "GET" ' or "POST"
        Dim myWebResponse As WebResponse = myWebRequest.GetResponse()

    End Sub

End Module
