How can I merge C# with popular social Web Services?

Nowadays we can create distributed systems using Web Services. A Web Service is an applicative logic unit that we can access using internet standard protocols. With these services we can create applications that are able to connect with servers in the web and allowing us to obtain information from them.

C# uses SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) as a communication protocol for interacting with different servers through Web Services.

Social Networks like Twitter or Facebook offer Web Services with methods that allow us interact with the information we got from them, these methods are included in the Application Programming interface (API) of each Social Network. To be able to communicate with these API’s we need to download and install the necessary libraries, this way C# will communicate transparently with these Web Services.
