Create a new file called facebook_config.php. include the  SDK new version code and set the config of your facebook app.
require_once __DIR__ . '/src/Facebook/autoload.php';
$fb = new Facebook\Facebook([
  'app_id' => '********', // Replace {app-id} with your app id
  'app_secret' => '*********',
  'default_graph_version' => 'v2.2',


Create a new table called 'facebook_users' with the below structure column.This table we will store facebook users response.
CREATE TABLE `facebook_users` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `oauth_id` varchar(100) NOT NULL,
  `name` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
  `email` varchar(100) NOT NULL,
  `gender` varchar(5) NOT NULL,
  `picture` varchar(250) NOT NULL,
  `link` varchar(250) NOT NULL,
  `cover` varchar(300) NOT NULL,
  `last_update` timestamp NOT NULL

Database Connection

Create a new file 'db_config.php' for database connection.Set your database connection.
    $db = new mysqli("localhost","user","password","database");
    if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
      echo "Failed to connect to MySQL: " . mysqli_connect_error();


Create a new index file include facebook config file. this page will check the user response information. In case your access token already exists the session, the page will be redirected to profile page.
if(!isset($_SESSION['fb_access_token'])) : 
    $helper = $fb->getRedirectLoginHelper();
    $permissions = ['email'];
    $redirect = 'http://yourhost/yourfolder/fb-callback.php';
    $loginUrl = $helper->getLoginUrl($redirect,$permissions);
    echo '<a href="' . htmlspecialchars($loginUrl) . '">Login with Facebook!</a>';
else :
    header('Location: member.php');


After getting the facebook response, We are storing the particular user access token to the session. Because based the access token only we can get the facebook user response.
$helper = $fb->getRedirectLoginHelper();
try {
  $accessToken = $helper->getAccessToken();
} catch(Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookResponseException $e) {
  // When Graph returns an error
  echo 'Graph returned an error: ' . $e->getMessage();
} catch(Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookSDKException $e) {
  // When validation fails or other local issues
  echo 'Facebook SDK returned an error: ' . $e->getMessage();

if (! isset($accessToken)) {
  if ($helper->getError()) {
    header('HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized');
    echo "Error: " . $helper->getError() . "\n";
    echo "Error Code: " . $helper->getErrorCode() . "\n";
    echo "Error Reason: " . $helper->getErrorReason() . "\n";
    echo "Error Description: " . $helper->getErrorDescription() . "\n";
  } else {
    header('HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request');
    echo 'Bad request';

// Logged in
echo '<h3>Access Token</h3>';
// The OAuth 2.0 client handler helps us manage access tokens
$oAuth2Client = $fb->getOAuth2Client();
// Get the access token metadata from /debug_token
$tokenMetadata = $oAuth2Client->debugToken($accessToken);
echo '<h3>Metadata</h3>';
echo '<pre>'; print_r($tokenMetadata);
// Validation (these will throw FacebookSDKException's when they fail)
$tokenMetadata->validateAppId("1721283891461664"); // Replace {app-id} with your app id
// If you know the user ID this access token belongs to, you can validate it here
if (! $accessToken->isLongLived()) {
  // Exchanges a short-lived access token for a long-lived one
  try {
    $accessToken = $oAuth2Client->getLongLivedAccessToken($accessToken);
  } catch (Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookSDKException $e) {
    echo "<p>Error getting long-lived access token: " . $helper->getMessage() . "</p>\n\n";

  echo '<h3>Long-lived</h3>';
  echo '<pre>'; print_r($accessToken->getValue());
$_SESSION['fb_access_token'] = (string) $accessToken;

// User is logged in with a long-lived access token.
// You can redirect them to a members-only page.


$fb->get() this function it will get the particular user response based on their access token.
if(!isset($_SESSION['fb_access_token'])) :
    $helper = $fb->getRedirectLoginHelper();
    $permissions = ['email'];
    $redirect = 'http://localhost/demo/sales/facebook/fb-callback.php';
    $loginUrl = $helper->getLoginUrl($redirect,$permissions);
    echo '<a href="' . htmlspecialchars($loginUrl) . '">Log in with Facebook!</a>';
else :
  $user_token = $_SESSION['fb_access_token'];
  try {
    $response = $fb->get('/me?fields=id,name,email,birthday,gender,picture,cover,link',
  } catch(Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookResponseException $e) {
      echo 'Graph returned an error: ' . $e->getMessage(); exit;
  } catch(Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookSDKException $e) {
      echo 'Facebook SDK returned an error: ' . $e->getMessage(); exit;
  $user = $response->getGraphUser();
  $profile = $user->getPicture();
  $oauth_id = $user["id"];
  $user_information  = array(
    'name'    => $user["name"],
    'email'   => $user["email"],
    'gender'  => $user["gender"],
    'picture' => $user['picture']['url'],
    'link'    => $user["link"],
    'cover'   => $user['cover']['source']

Users information

After getting the response from facebook. store the user information to the database. if the user data already exists the just update the user information.

$user_check = $db->query("SELECT oauth_id FROM facebook_users WHERE oauth_id=$oauth_id");
  $user_check_count = mysqli_num_rows($user_check);
  if($user_check_count) :
    $update =$db->query("UPDATE `facebook_users` SET `name`='".$user_information['name']."',`email`='".$user_information['email']."',
      `link`='".$user_information['link']."',`cover`='".$user_information['cover']."' WHERE oauth_id ='".$oauth_id."'");
  else :
    $insert = $db->query("INSERT INTO `facebook_users` SET `oauth_id`='".$oauth_id."', `name`='".$user_information['name']."',
  $query_user = $db->query("SELECT * FROM facebook_users WHERE oauth_id=$oauth_id");
  $user_data = mysqli_fetch_assoc($query_user);
  echo '<pre>'; print_r($user_data); exit;


Unset the access token session value.
