According to this, .NET can: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4489498/how-to-convert-facebook-graph-date-time-into-c-sharp-datetime


time = DateTime.ParseExact(timeString, @"yyyy-MM-dd\Thh:mm:ssK", CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);

throws an exception with "2011-11-18T16:04:54+0000"

time = DateTime.ParseExact(timeString, @"yyyy MM dd hh mm ss zzzzz", CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);
