Overview

This plugin provides access to Facebook Connect, a set of APIs for accessing the Facebook social network. The functions allow a user to login/logout, post messages and images, and retrieve status.

Important

This is the legacy plugin for Facebook. As of October 30, 2016, Facebook's Graph API v2.1 will no longer be available. Thus, we encourage all Corona developers to upgrade to the latest Facebook plugin which supports Graph API v2.8.

Developing for Facebook requires that you register in the Facebook Developer Portal.
