class FacebookApi 
{
	
 var $consumer;
 var $token;
 var $method;
 var $http_status;
 var $last_api_call;

 var $access_token;
 
 function __construct($data)
 {
  $config = array();
  $config['appId'] = $data['consumer_key'];
  $config['secret'] = $data['consumer_secret'];
 
  $this->connection = new Facebook($config);
 
 }
 
 function share($title, $targetUrl, $imgUrl, $description, $access_token)
 {
  $this->connection->setAccessToken($access_token);
  $params["access_token"] = $access_token;
  
  if(!empty($title))
  {
   $params["message"] = $title;
   $params["name"] = $title;
  }
  
  if(!empty($targetUrl))
  {
   $params["link"] = $targetUrl;
  }
  
  if(!empty($imgUrl))
  {
   $params["picture"] = $imgUrl;
  }
  
  if(!empty($description))
  {
   $params["description"] = $description;
  }
 
  // post to Facebook
  try 
  {
   $ret = $this->connection->api('/me/feed', 'POST', $params);
  }
  catch(Exception $e) 
  {
   $e->getMessage();
  }
 
  return true;
 }
 
 function getLoginUrl($params)
 {
  return $this->connection->getLoginUrl($params);
 }
 
 function getContent($url) 
 {
  $ci = curl_init();
  /* Curl settings */
  curl_setopt($ci, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
  curl_setopt($ci, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
  curl_setopt($ci, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);
  curl_setopt( $ci, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 10 );
  curl_setopt($ci, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
 
  $response = curl_exec($ci);
  curl_close ($ci);
  return $response;
 }
 
}
?>

<?php
$access_token = Your_Access_Token;
$facebookData = array();
$facebookData['consumer_key'] = Your_key;
$facebookData['consumer_secret'] = Your_Secret;
