    What language is best for developing a FB scraper that will use their API and why?

    Also, desktop app VS web app?

    I doubt you really want to use their API. That would not be scraping. Any language is good, python is the most popular for scraping. I personally like Java. Desktop or web app depends, which one are you more familiar with?
