Facebook: Automated posting on others walls

It appears that Facebook has removed the ability to post on friends walls in it's api. I'm wondering if this is still at all possible through third party applications at all? For example I can parse a list of friends pages/urls with associated dates using Jsoup(Java html scrapper), but I'm unfamiliar with the Facebook webpage interactions. Is anyone familiar with how to do this?

It is not possible and there are no third party applications for this either. Btw, scraping is not allowed on Facebook:

You get access to friends by using the /me/friends endpoint, and you only get friends who authorized your App too, for privacy reasons. In other words: Users who did not authorize your App are none of your business. More information: Facebook Graph Api v2.0+ - /me/friends returns empty, or only friends who also use my app
