Extended Access Token

After removal of offline_access permission, you have to make a graph api call for get extended access token.

<?php 

$token = $fb->getExtendedAccessToken();
echo "Extented access token: {$token} <br>";

// with expire time
$tokenData = $fb->getExtendedAccessToken(true);
$token = $tokenData['access_token'];
$tokenExpires = time() + $tokenData['expires'];

echo "Extented access token: {$token} (Expires at {$tokenExpires})";

Friends

<?php 

$friends = $fb->getFriends();

foreach ($friends as $friend) {
    echo "Name: {$friend["name"]} ID: {$friend['id']} <br>";
}

// or just ids
$friendIds = $fb->getFriendIds();

Get user friends who using this application.

<?php 

$friends = $fb->getAppUserFriends();

foreach ($friends as $friend) {
    echo "Name: {$friend["name"]} Facebook ID: {$friend['uid']} <br>";
}

// or just ids
$friendIds = $fb->getAppUserFriendIds();

Permissions

<?php 

// get given permissions array
$perms = $fb->getGivenPermissions();

// check if a permission given
if ($fb->isPermGiven('read_stream')) {
    // now you can get user's news feed items
    $data = $fb->api('/me/home');
    // ..
}

// check multiple permissions
if ($fb->isPermGiven('read_stream,read_mailbox,user_likes')) {
    // ..
}

Request

If you are using Requests Dialog, you must delete the request after it has been accepted. It is the developer's responsibility to clear them.

<?php 

// get request ids after delete
$requestIds = $fb->getRequestIdsAfterDelete();

if (!empty($requestIds)) {

    foreach ($requestIds as $requestData) {

        $data = explode('_', $requestData);
        $requestId = $data[0];
        $userFbUid = $data[1];

        // your turn..
    }
}

Page Tab Application

If it is a tab application, you might want user to like page before using app.

<?php 

if (!$fb->isTabPageLiked()) {

    echo 'Like our page before using app';

} else {
    // ..
}

Get information about tab page.

<?php 

// ...?sk=app_YOUR_APP_ID&app_data=YOUR_APP_DATA
$appData = $fb->getTabAppData();

// tab page id
$pageId  = $fb->getTabPageId();

Publish Open Graph Action

<?php 

$responseId = $fb->publishOpenGraphAction('YOUR_APP_NAMESPACE', 'ACTION_NAME', array(
    'OBJECT_TYPE' => 'OBJECT_URL'
));

Real-time Updates

Real-time Updates enable your application to subscribe to changes in data in Facebook.

<?php 

$object      = 'OBJECT'; // user, permissions or page
$fields      = 'FIELDS'; // friends, checkins, likes etc.
$callbackUrl = 'YOUR_CALLBACK_URL';
$verifyToken = 'YOUR_SECRET_VERIFY_TOKEN';

// subscribe to real-time updates
$fb->subscribe($object, $fields, $callbackUrl, $verifyToken);

// get list of subscripted updates
$subscriptions = $fb->getSubscriptions();

// unsubscribe from all subscripted objects
$fb->unsubscribe();

// unsubscribe from a specific subscripted object
$fb->unsubscribe('user');

And this is callback url part.

<?php 
// returns challenge parameter for subscription verification of your callback url
echo SimpleFacebook::getSubscriptionChallenge($verifyToken);

// get subscripted updates
$updates = SimpleFacebook::getSubscriptedUpdates();

if (!empty($updates)) {
    // there is a update!
}

Send Notification

With Notifications API, you can easily send notification to an application user.

<?php

$userId   = 'USER_FACEBOOK_ID';
$template = 'NOTIFICATION_TEXT';
$href     = 'RETURN_HREF'; // index.html?gift_id=123

$response = $fb->sendNotification($userId, $template, $href);

Run FQL Query

<?php 

// Get page fan count with running fql query
$query = "SELECT name, fan_count FROM page WHERE page_id = 40796308305";
$data  = $fb->runFQL($query);

echo 'Fan count: ' . $data[0]['fan_count'];

Check A Page Like

<?php 

if ($fb->isLogged() && $fb->isPageLiked('PAGE_ID')) {

    echo "Liked";

} else {
    echo "Didn't like";
}

Post to Wall

<?php 

// Post data
$postData = array(
    'message'     => 'Feed message',
    'picture'     => 'Address of image', 
    'link'        => 'URL',
    'name'        => 'URL title',
    'caption'     => 'Caption (under the URL title)',
    'description' => 'Description',
    'actions'     => array('name' => 'Action name', 'link' => 'Action link')
);

$postId = $fb->postToWall($postData);

Create Event

<?php 

// Event data
$eventData = array(
    'name'        => 'Event Title',
    'description' => 'Event description',
    'start_time'  => gmmktime(22,0,0,7,23,2012),
    'end_time'    => gmmktime(5,0,0,7,24,2012),
    'location'    => 'Event location',
    'privacy'     => 'OPEN'
);

$eventId = $fb->createEvent($eventData);
