This is cool, but I'm not sure that you should allow individual users  
the ability to trigger FB Notifications to all of their friends. FB  
puts a limit on the number of Notifications that the application (in  
this case, your Horde install) can send in one day for each user. That  
can easily be hit if a user sends all of his/her friends one or two  
notifications. Per FB's docs, if the number of recipients in the  
notification.send method is more then the allocation, only the first x  
friends are sent the message.  If you want to use notifications for  
this, I would suggest first checking the allocation left for the user  
before attempting to send, and/or even display the number of  
notifications that are available. (This value is changed by FB  
depending on several factors regarding your application usage, number  
of users etc...)

Another option is to use something like Feed.publishUserAction  
to put a "one line story" on the current user's Wall/Feed which would  
then show up on that user's friends' Live Feed as well.  It could even  
be (optionally) triggered on an action like adding a new image,  
gallery, video, whatever.  It's even possible to post a <img> tag in  
some of those stories etc....

Just my thoughts....
