Using facepy to deal with facebook .

This python module allow you to get some data from facebook using Facebook’s Graph API.
The development team told us:
Facepy can do more than reading your latest posts and posting photographs of parrots, but you’ll have to read the documentation to find out how.
You can use pip to install this module ( pip2.7 or pip3.4):
pip install facepy
The python script is simple :

...\Python34>cd Scripts
Scripts>pip3.4.exe install facepy

Now you can test this with this simple script:
C:\Python34>python.exe
