I have been looking for good Facebook API examples for VB.NET, but have NOT been able to find any good documentation AT ALL!
I have been looking around EVERYWHERE including the developers.facebook.com documentation & NOTHING for VB.NET.
However, I have only found a small piece of code that supposedly enables you to post to your timeline on FB:

VB.NET:
Dim a As New System.Net.WebClient
        a.Encoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8
       a.UploadString("https://graph.facebook.com/me/feed?method=POST&message=" + TextBox2.Text + Nothing, "&access_token=[AccessTokenGoesHere!!!")

But when I use this code, I keep getting the following Error message:
System.Net.WebException was unhandled
HResult=-2146233079
Message=The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.
Source=System

Did Facebook change again??? Does anyone have an example of how to post to your timeline?
I have already created the "App ID" & "App Secret" on the developers site. Any example would be greatly appreciated!
