Below are the steps to get a 60 Day User Access Token for facebook, or commonly referred to as the 'Long Lived Token'. These steps assume you have already signed up as a facebook developer and have created an app. If you have not done that part please click here to view those steps.

This tool will be useful for many developers but it was mainly created to help users of our wordpress plugin, Feed Them Social, to retrieve posts that may be showing the 'Attachment Unavailable' message.
