Facebook Access Tokens

In order to connect your Facebook account to your website for the Social Stream and Social Tabs Deluxe, you will need to create a Facebook access token.

  1. Sign up for a Facebook developers account.
  2. Create a Facebook App or use an existing app if you already have one.
  3. From the "Tools" menu at the top, select "Graph API Explorer" to generate a short-lived access token.
  4. Select your app from the top right "Facebook App" drop-down menu, if not already selected.
  5. In the next drop-down, entitled "User or Page" select "Get Page Access Token" or your page under "Page Access Tokens".
  6. Next, be sure to add a permission for "pages_read_user_content".
  7. In the popup window that appears, select all the pages that you want token to be able to access and click "Next", then "Done", and "Okay". Note: Don't worry about the Login Review as this is not necessary.
  8. Copy the newly generated access token in the top right.
  9. From the "Tools" menu at the top, select Access Token Debugger and, after pasting your new access token, click the "Debug" button.
  10. Go on bottom click "Extend Access Token" and then the "Debug" button at the bottom right.
  11. Finally, copy the newly extended access token and paste this token into the "Facebook Access Token" field in the Site Manager.
