Notification on status update

Sep 7, 2009 at 6:21 AM

I would like to write a Facebook plugin, looking at the installing users status updates. Is there some part of the API, which makes it possible to get notified, each time the installing user, updates his/her status?

I could just do a desktop application letting the user login and after that poll the user object for status updates. But I would really like to get the updates AS they happen, rather than polling multiple facebook accounts.
