I have only recently discovered Askbot, as we are currently looking into open source Q&A sites. One of the requirements for this project is that the website is accessibility. This is why I was wondering if it was possible to enable some sort of Facebook notifications, in addition to the e-mail notifications?

The main use case I have in mind is when someone replies to your question, you get an instant notification on facebook. Another case would be to receive a notification when someone posts a question with a certain tag.

It's possible in principle, we have already implemented some of that for Twitter, but we don't yet have anything done for Facebook.

I have been looking into the Facebook API, but it would seem that Facebook does not permit such notifications. On https://developers.facebook.com/docs/concepts/notifications/ it is stated that the notifications API is only available for apps on facebook.com. :(

Thanks, I see. Still posting to one's wall is possible and can be done.
