hello,
i have a question, can the oauth class be used to make a 2 way authentication with the facebook server?
i want to send the user credentials directly to the server and get back some basic information about the user.
is it possible?

Yes, that is the purpose of OAuth.

The way it works is that first the user grants your application access to their profile and your application gets a token that is stored in the access_token class variable.

With that token you can send calls to Facebook API, even when the user is not present, to request whatever information you need.
