OAuth Access token (t.string :access_token)

Include our FbGraphRails::FbModel into your user model:

class FacebookUser < ActiveRecord::Base
    include FbGraphRails::FbModel
     ...
end

and include into your controller our authentication filter:

class QuizzesController < ApplicationController

  fb_authenticate
  ....

end
