Today we are in the period of the reborn of Internet. Since WEB 2.0 the users are not only simple consumers of the Internet, but they are also forming it. As the result of services built up to users a new virtual society was grown up. Nowadays the people spend their time using the computer with browsing social networking websites. The most popular of them today is Facebook, which has more than 500 million active users, and provides lots of services to their Members. We can keep in touch with our friends organizing programs, sharing moments from our life every day. Sharing our activities is also yet possible using mobile devices e.g. smart phones or tablets.

So today is especially important, that during development of a social networking application we have to try to integrate the services what Facebook provides. In this thesis we introduce the main steps and the applied technology of this integration process through lots of examples.

In the first part of my work I developed a.NET class library written in C#. The advantage of this library – cold Facebook Core – is the capability of using Facebook API Services in managed environment. After finishing this component, I created a social networking web application which uses the Facebook Core library. The page was developed using ASP.NET MVC 3.
