In this quick blog we will quickly go through how to publish a post on Facebook Page with graph API from your Laravel Application.

Step 1 : Create Facebook App

Login to with your Facebook account and create an app.

Now go to Settings -> Basic of your Facebook app and copy app id and app secret.

Step 3: Get Exchange Token from Facebook App

Go to Facebook Graph API Explorer. Here is the link

From here first select your application and then select the page for Page Access Token

When you are generating this token please select graph API version 2.2 and select the following permissions.


Step 4 : Generate Access Token 

From the exchange token generated in Step 3, Get the access token.

$url = ' YOUR_APP_ID&client_secret= YOUR_APP_SECRET&fb_exchange_token=YOUR_TOKEN';

$curl = curl_init();
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
$result = curl_exec($curl);
$output = json_decode($result);
$access_token = $output->access_token;

Step 5 : Call Facebook Graph API to Send Post to Page

Create SDK object

$fb = new \Facebook\Facebook([
'app_id' => 'YOUR_APP_ID',
'app_secret' => 'YOUR_APP_SECRET',
'default_graph_version' => 'v2.2',

Generate Payload

$linkData = [
 'link' => YOUR_LINK,
 'message' => YOUR_TITLE

Call Graph API.

$pageAccessToken =$access_token;

try {
 $response = $fb->post('/me/feed', $linkData, $pageAccessToken);
} catch(Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookResponseException $e) {
 echo 'Graph returned an error: '.$e->getMessage();
} catch(Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookSDKException $e) {
 echo 'Facebook SDK returned an error: '.$e->getMessage();
$graphNode = $response->getGraphNode();
