I am wanting to create a Facebook Widget using XWidgets and I have NO IDEA where to start. I know how to code HTML but even that knowledge is limited.

Here is what I want it to do:

Update Status directly from Desktop

Receive Status Updates from Friends in Real Time

Review/Receive Notifications in Real Time

Receive and Reply to direct messages

Chat with Friends (not a necessity since I do not use this feature on Facebook)

Not sure if I should use Javascript, ActionScript, Flash, XML, or HTML...like I said earlier, NO IDEA of what I am doing.

So any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
