    Hey all,

    I know some of the most knowledgeable people on the internet in regards to facebook troll these boards, so Im going to throw out a few questions which I hope someone could lead me in the right direction in regards to resolving.

    I'm sure you have all by now heard of this site http://youropenbook.org/ which allows users to search all public facebook status updates by keyword.

    What i want to know is how I would go about aggregating public status updates about certain topics using the facebook API.

    For example, say i wanted all the public status updates that had the words "facebook sucks" in them how would i go about doing this with the facebook API? Do i even need the API, and how would i then collect this data? Or a better question may be how does openbook work?

    I'm not looking to be spoon fed here, but just looking to be pointed in the right direction.

    Thanks a million!
