A friend of mine asked me to write him a bot that would automatically poke back anyone who poked him on Facebook, so that's what I did.
This bot doesn't make use of any of the actual Facebook APIs, but instead performs all of its actions by mimicking the behavior of an actual web browser. I designed it this way for three reasons.
Assuming you meet all the requirements listed above, all you need to do is run main.py Pokebot will ask for your Facebook email and password, as well as an amount of time to wait between checking for pokes. Once all of that information is squared away, Pokebot will run on a continuous loop until you tell it to stop.
