  1. Hi,
    please help me why my access token get expires. is not there any php code that does everything itself? there are so many manual steps in the article like generating the code Step2 and step3.
    please help me with the php code because other users will not do manually these things

  2. Hello,
    I think you should remove the following code, just after you’ve got secret token:

    $testtoken= "ONETIMETOKEN"; // Replace this value with your Token Value
    $result = $fb->call_method('facebook.auth.getSession',
    array('auth_token' => $testtoken, 'generate_session_secret' => true));
    echo "
    "; print_r($result); echo $session_key = $result['session_key'];
