Facebook Visual Kit is a set of ASP.NET controls that facilitate the use of common and popular Facebook features by wrapping and hiding the complexity of underlying implementation from the user. This set of controls makes development of Facebook iFrame applications, both in C# and VB.NET programing languages, significantly easier, faster and more organized. Facebook Visual Kit also aids in reducing application maintenance efforts as your applications will not be affected by frequent changes in Facebook API. This library, in combination with Facebook Developer Toolkit, is the core of our applications. Through intensive usage in customers' and our applications, the library has evolved and has become a very mature product that saves development time. Some of the component examples are: Facebook Tabs, Send Status, Stream Publish Popups, Invite Friends, Select Friends, Special Buttons, Permissions, etc.

Incredible value. Incredible support!

My first attempt at Facebook programming was to get the free C# SDK. Well, the problem with that is the documentation is not very good (to say the least). So I figured that all I need to do is head over to Facebook's documentation and figure things out but that was of little help. To make a long story short, I found FVK. The price is right. I got the full package with source code and all the demo applications.
Being new to Facebook programming I did encounter some difficulties. So I decided to contact Vatlab's support and I must say that they are great! Not only are the emails promptly answered but they even sent me more sample apps and even helped me debug my own mistakes.
My advice to you is this. If you are developing Facebook apps using ASP.NET you can either spend countless hours trying to figure out Facebook's SDK and/or the free C# SDK or just save yourself a ton of time and get Vatlab's FVK. They even offer (as of this writing) a 30 day money back guarantee. You just can't go wrong with this product!
A fantastic library for FB development

We are new to Facebook development and this library has undoubtedly shortened our learning curve and saved us hours of trial and error.
We're currently using it on a standalone website which needs to access FB user details in order to provide special offers to our customers.
We have plans to start FB iframe developments as well and again this library will be ideally suited to the task.
Support is great - Vatroslav (the code author) is really helpful, fast and efficient in replying to queries.
Highly recommended, great value for money, 5 stars!
Excellent Product & Excellent Service

Firstly i'd like to say that the Facebook Visual Kit has turned out to be one of the best products I've ever bought. It has saved me countless hours of having to read through out-dated documentation on implementing the Facebook scripts directly. Everything you need is wrapped in this one package. More importantly i'd like to praise the service, if ever I came across something I wasn't sure about I would send an email to support and within the hour they were doing everything they could to help me. You can't ask for a better service than this. I'd give this product a 10/10 and no i'm not a sales person, just a very satisfied customer.
why did I even try ...

to implement this on my own??? I bought the vatlab asp.net package and within an hour I had the login with FB and stream to friends functionality working perfectly. Since I don't really "understand" FB and it's potential, I also talked to Vat about other controls. http://demo.vatlab.net/RequestDialog.aspx. This one is new and for my business model makes total sense. A customizable "Invite all your friend to join my site"? Sounds like a plan! Thanks Vat!

I have been using the libraries for few days now working on a social-driven website. The libraries are solid, work as advertised. Excellent documentation on www.vatlab.com and offline. Extremely good support - quick and right on the topic.
I purchased the Pack 2 package and must say - the example applications are of a big help!
I even called Vatroslav on the phone and he was able to resolve my issue on the spot. This kind of support, when you have tight deadlines is priceless!
Save yourself the frustration to go trough Facebook documentation and Google for examples. Everyhting is available trough this package, including extremelly good support! Money well spent! I recommend Vatlab products 100%.

I am very pleased and impressed by Vatlab Facebook libraries. It saved me countless hours of scripting and reading the outdated "how to connect on facebook" documentation. It's a must-get for any programmer who wants to quickly integrate Facebook features. Very decent price too. I highly recommend it.
Excellent and easy to implement

I m not a hard core coder and I was looking for an easy and fast solution to implement facebook login on my website. I purchased the library package 1 that comes with a solution containing examples for all the controls. The documentation is very clear and all you have to do is pretty much copy/paste the code from the example solution. If I had to hire a developer to write code everything from scratch it would have been beyond my budget.
The customer support is very helpful and prompt as well. I received answers to my questions pretty much instantly.

I purchased this product looking for a fast and effective solution for connection flash games to facebook. I'm primarily a Flash/Flex developer and the source code of this project was very well organized and written, this was very helpful to me.
I've bought bits of code over the years when needed to save time for various projects and this one has been one of the easiest to work with. The reason I did not give it an Excellent ratings is because it's not in MVC, but I did email support and they were very quick to respond and inform me that an MVC version is in the works.

I highly recommend FVK for everybody doing Facebook apps in ASP.Net. In my case it paid it self up in the first hour of use. I was doing my first Facebook project, and had been stuck in resolving problems, rooted in poor documentation and bugs in the Facebook platform and the base .Net Facebook library, and when the deadline was closing in, I was lucky to stumble upon FVK, which enabled me to meet my obligations. I'm also very happy with the quick and flawless service I got from vatlab.com.
