    Best to follow the advise here
    Build Facebook Applications with Silverlight 3 and Silverlight 4 -

    There are two ways to create a facebook application with Silverlight:

    Create ASP.Net Web site using Facebook API for ASP.Net from Facebook Developer Toolkit : and add a Silverlight project to solution
    Create Silverlight application using Facebook API for Silverlight from Facebook Developer Toolkit
    Documentation for Facebook API for Silverlight is not proposed in codeplex. There are only some samples.

    The easiest way to build a Silverlight application for Facebook is to use a C# VS.Net 2008 Started Kit, created from Steve Trefethen

    You can download a Facebook C# VS.Net 2008 Started Kit here: It is based on Facebook Developer's Toolkit v2.1.

    C# VS.Net 2008 Started Kit Requires VS 2008 / Silverlight 3.0

    It is very easy to convert created solution to VS 2010 with .Net 4.0 , Silverlight 4 and continue working on the solution.

    There are several steps to create a Facebook ASP.Net application using Facebook Starter Kit:

    Download the Facebook Developer Toolkit
    Download and install Facebook Starter Kit (it adds a project template for new Facebook Starter Kit (Web Site)
    Start VS.NET 2008 (Facebook Developer Toolkit v2.1 requires .NET v3.5)
    Select File|New Web Site... (C# Language)|Facebook Starter Kit v2.1
    Create a new application on Facebook
    Configure your Facebook application
    Update your web.config
    Start coding!

    C# language knowledge
    VS.NET 2008 with .NET v3.5 (VS 2010 can't work with imported project templates from Facebook Starter Kit , but VS 2008 Facebook applications can be converted and used from VS 2010)
    Facebook Starter Kit
    Create a new Application on Facebook:

    Sign up for a Facebook account
    Add the Developer application to your account
    On the Facebook developers page click the Set Up New Application

    Get hold of
    Project Linker: Synchronization Tool
    You can use this also:

    You can use this also:
    This is a Visual Studio add-in which builds Silverlight Library directly from standard .NET class library just by a simple right click. The idea is to simplify the management of two separate .csproj files pointing to same code base and soft linking between them.

    This version of BuildAsSilverlight is tested with the following environment only:
    .NET Runtime 4.0
    Visual Studio 2010 Professional
    Silverlight 4
