Is it possible to update Facebook Timeline using some sort of an API?

Say for instance if I wanted to upload a large amount of content for the reverse chronological history of the timeline?

  • If you were referring to information in the past, it is not possible. E.g. You cannot currently use the API to post a life event to your past.

  • @Creator - Not really. a) the post is quite old and b) there's not a specific coding question being asked - just "can I do this?"

See: Facebook Graph API reference at "Publishing":

You can publish to the Facebook graph by issuing HTTP POST requests to the appropriate connection URLs, using an access token.

For more detailed information, see also Graph API reference for a single "post".

Also good reading is the Open Graph tutorial and Best Practices guide.

Disclaimer: I haven't tried this myself, so there could be some limitations I'm not aware of.
