There are already tons of app that can do this. For e.g. Birthday Diary, the free app lets you view and manage friend's birthdays.  Have a look at this, and many more apps, and then decide to do your new app. 

And on the positive note, you should visit http://facebooktoolkit.codeplex.com/ . This is the codeplex version of the toolkit, and there is lots of goodies and information here. For a windows phone 7 sample, look at

Hope this information suffices.

One of the best libraries available for Facebook and .NET is the Facebook C# SDK.

http://facebooksdk.codeplex.com/

There are a couple sample projects for integrating your Facebook app with ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight, and WebForms.

The package is available from NuGet as well.

One of the nice features of this library is it's use of dynamic objects. This article explains the advantages of using dynamic over strongly typed methods.

Using the Json.NET library, serializing the dynamic responses to POCO is very straightforward.

Hope this will help you
