REQUEST: Open Graph Beta Plugin (1 post)

    This is a bit beyond my own meagre programming skills but I assume that this might have wider use and someone may enjoy a challenge!

    Facebook just launched the new open graph which lets you tag your objects -

    I have got to the point where I can create a open graph of action of 'reading' my object of 'post'. The open graph tags are almost all there (and I can make them get there if they are not) but where I fall down is a cURL request is required to the facebook server to initiate the action of reading when the page loads.

    This obviously can't be done direct from javascript as it is cross-domain - the complexities of this are beyond me but as far as I can see if someone would write a plugin that would ping the facebook server when a post loads it would be possible to implement an auto-post to facebook when a user starts reading.

    Anybody feel up to the challenge? (Full disclaimer, I have no commercial interest in this idea... run with it!)
