    I am trying to make a post on another user's wall using another user using FBConnect. I am using the embedded method of the iOS Facebook API (that is, I am forcing the browser to appear inside my app, so I am not leaving the application at all). This method works for posting into the wall of the same user, but doesn't work on the wall of another user.

        self.facebook = [[[Facebook alloc] initWithAppId:self.appID andDelegate:self] autorelease];
    if ([self.facebook isSessionValid]) {
        [self proceedToPost];
        [self.facebook authorize:nil];
    - (void)proceedToPost
    NSMutableDictionary* params = [NSMutableDictionary dictionaryWithObjectsAndKeys: @"myname", @"name",
                                   self.appID, @"app_id",
                                   self.title, @"caption",
                         , @"link",
                                   @"animateURL", @"picture",
    [params setObject:"my-user-profile-id" forKey:@"to"];
    [self.facebook dialog:@"feed" andParams:params andDelegate:self];
    The problem is that authorization is done as expected, but when trying to actually post, I see an error message in the embedded browser "cannot post to user's wall".

    Can anyone help me with this?
