    post to facebook users wall at signup?

    With permission, of course. I've seen this before, but can not for the life of me find any information on it. What I want to do is have a form that people fill out to register for my event. Then, I want them to have the option to post it to their wall.

    On their wall, I want something like "John Doe just signed up for this super cool event" with a link to the site. Any ideas on how people are doing this?

    Facebook has different permission levels and the most common way for a site to post is via the API launching a prompt which gives the user control over who sees it and a personal message.

    This is explained at Log In | Facebook

    You can also simply use the like button as shown at Log In | Facebook

    More info on the API found by google searching: "facebook post as user"
