Facebook API Integration question?

Does anyone know if it is possible to do the following things using the Facebook Connect API?

1. Post directly to a user's group page (not their personal timeline page) ?
2. Have a user select multiple friends from facebook, store that list, then message to that list of selected friends (without having to re-type each one of the friend's names again, each time)?

We find the Facebook API very limiting for how it should be used. Has anyone ever seen the above two use cases done anywhere or are familiar enough with the code that they know it can be done?

Thanks!

I can't tell you 100% with certainty, but from what I recall, you cannot do either of those things.

Also good luck finding the info on Facebook's development site. They provide almost zero information about what you can and can't do. We would always just try to build something and just see what API access we could get in order to learn.

(We used to do a bunch of Facebook app development but we do less of it now so maybe it's better.)
