Re: [NYC-rb] [OT] Facebook Graph and Privacy Question.

Seems like it does need the token - visiting in a browser returns the JSON fine but says it requires a token.  If you don't need access that is particular to a user, you could authenticate yourself with "allow offline access" and just have your app always use your personal token.

I like them so much that I want to use the FB API to pull in their recent posts and spit it onto my blog.

    if ( > 0){
    // build a string of the responses and put
    // them on the page with DHTML

This used to work.
Now it returns an object with the error "An access token is required to request this resource."

I've poured over their documentation for a while - but I'm sure someone on the list has more experience with FB graph.

I find it hard to believe I need to go through an OAuth song-and-dance to grab info from the graph API that's publicly available
on their FB page.
