[resolved] Does this work with groups? Getting error 803 (2 posts)

    I used the following code

    [fbalbum url=https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.680629418634441]

    which is a publically availble link here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.680629418634441&type=1 which comes from our group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/GameMakersUnion/

    I got the following error, I don't know how to fix. Does this plugin not work with groups?

       "error": {
          "message": "(#803) Some of the aliases you requested do not exist: 680629418634441&type=1",
          "type": "OAuthException",
          "code": 803

    I've been trying to figure out how to make ANY WordPress plugin work for pulling Facebook group album photos for hours now. Assistance would be greatly appreciated. I've seen one other plugin need an authentication token, but I don't see any instructions on http://wordpress.org/plugins/facebook-albums/ It says FAQ

    Only Facebook Page photo albums can be used without a Facebook app
    so I suppose this doesn't qualify as an app. So I'm currently confused what to do.

    Facebook's API does not allow accessing group albums. It allows photos, posts, and attachments, but not albums.

    Why? No idea.
