Facebook requires a Page Access Token if you want to use the data from your Facebook page, customize it and embed it on your website through SociableKIT.

For example, in SociableKIT Facebook Page Events Solution, a page access token is required if you want your feed to update every hour, display past events, and more useful features.

IMPORTANT: For the Facebook page events solution, if you will use a page access token, your Facebook page must be the creator or a co-host of an event that you want to display. Learn more about the rules here: With Token vs No Token

How to get a Facebook page access token? Follow the steps below. This will work only if you are an admin of the Facebook page you’re trying to get data from.

Using the page access token, you can also make an event from another Facebook page appear on your events feed. But your page needs to be a co-host of that event first. Follow this tutorial if you want to be an event co-host.

IMPORTANT: Facebook said there is a “page access token that never expires” and this is true only if:

1. You did not change your password.

2. Your account was not affected by the recent Facebook security issues.

If you think your events feed is not syncing correctly, you need to re-enter your “page access token” so that your event images will look better, it will update every hour and it will show the past events.

Please follow our tutorial above carefully.
