Question About Posting Updates to Facebook from within a PHP script

Let me preface this by saying, I have no experience with the Facebook API and I’m not really interested in learning all that much about it at this point. I basically I have one feature I would like to implement on a site and that’s it.

It’s for a site that has multiple bloggers/writers with unique logins. I would like to post an update to their Facebook Wall each time they post on article on the site I’m building so that they’re friends can see it.

If you’ve linked your YouTube Account with your facebook, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. If you upload a video to YouTube it automatically posts to your wall notifying your friends.

So basically I want something on their Wall that says “So&So Posted a Blog Titled “Blah Blah Blah” on”.

I’m looking through the google developer documentation, but its a little overwhelming since I’m brand new to it.

Just hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Any advice would be appreciated.

If you aren’t interested in learning the API, this is impossible. Unlucky.

Clearly I will have to learn some of the API. However, from looking over the Developer site there are quite a lot of different things you can do from building a Facebook Application that runs within Facebook, to logging users into your site using their Facebook credentials, etc.

I was just hoping for some advice on the best place to get started given the specific feature I would like to implement.
