Im used to working with twitter, where friend/follower totals are available in a simple xml request.

My goal is a simple "enter your username/user id, and display your friends count".

Is there something like this for facebook? From what i gather, ill have to make an application, and have anyone who wants to grab their friends total actually install that app from within their own facebook profile.

Anyone have any experience with this?
