You will not be able to use Rainmeter to access any web based information which requires authentication unless you can provide it on the URL in the form of a GET like:

http://somesite.com&id=myname&password=hoorah

If a site requires a cookie or other authentication, it will not work with Rainmeter.

I assume that this retrieves just the "public" stuff on your account?

I have no idea. I personally don't use it, I just have the essentials on my desktop.
I've just seen a few around so I know it exists in one way or another.

yep you can do it. with out log in cedentials, take your notes feed

ex. http://www.facebook.com/feeds/notes.php?id=xxxxxxxxxx&viewer=xxxxxxxxxx&key=xxxxxxxxx&format=rss20

and replace notes.php with friends_status.php

http://www.facebook.com/feeds/friends_status.php?id=xxxxxxxxxx&key=xxxxxxxxxx&format=rss20

works for me at least. :)

This is the song that never ends. It just goes on and on my friends. Some people started singing it not knowing what it was, and they'll continue singing it forever just because . . .

yep, but you have to replace the X's with the numbers that are in your specific notes feed.

The problem is that you need to active the feeds through facebook (via the methods in the link above), or else they simply will not exist.
