  app.use(express.cookieParser());
  app.use(express.session({ secret: 'foo bar' }));
  app.use(Facebook.middleware({ appId: 'YOUR_APP_ID', secret: 'YOUR_APP_SECRET' }));
});

app.get('/', Facebook.loginRequired(), function (req, res) {
  req.facebook.api('/me', function(err, user) {
    res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
    res.end('Hello, ' + user.name + '!');
  });
});
