Setting things up #

You must first create an app at Facebook for developers: https://developers.facebook.com/

Get your app id (referred to as [APP_ID] below)

Configure Android #

Read through the "Getting Started with App Events for Android" tutuorial and in particular, follow step 2 by adding the following into /app/res/values/strings.xml (or into respective debug or release build flavor)

<string name="facebook_app_id">[APP_ID]</string>

After that, add that string resource reference to your main AndroidManifest.xml file, directly under the <application> tag.

<meta-data
  android:name="com.facebook.sdk.ApplicationId"
  android:value="@string/facebook_app_id" />

<key>CFBundleURLTypes</key>
<array>
  <dict>
  <key>CFBundleURLSchemes</key>
  <array>
    <string>fb[APP_ID]</string>
  </array>
  </dict>
</array>
<key>FacebookAppID</key>
<string>[APP_ID]</string>
<key>FacebookDisplayName</key>
