    When activating SFC and editing the settings for the first time, I am asked for a Facebook API ID, Facebook Application Secret, and Facebook Application ID. After following the Facebook Application List link, it appears that the Facebook API ID and Facebook Application ID are one in the same, as Facebook refers to this as App ID / API Key. Entering the same value in both fields, though, seems to fail validation for the API ID, and I still see a red error message indicating that the settings are incorrect. Where do I find the correct value to place in the "Facebook API Key" field?

    Visit https://www.facebook.com/developers/apps.php and you'll find the correct API key. Note that this is a different URL than https://developers.facebook.com/apps. FB has switched around their old development pages and made the first link harder to find.

    Or, switch to the newer development version, which doesn't need the API key anymore and works much better.
