Integrate with Hoofpick
Once you have generated a non-expiring access token and you've got your Facebook Page ID, go to your Hoofpick dashboard and navigate to Settings - Mobile App - Mobile App Settings.
Scroll down the page to the Social Menu section. Give this a label on your app's menu (e.g. Social News). Enter 'Facebook' as the Social Title and then copy and paste your Facebook Page ID into the Social ID field. Then copy and paste your Access Token in the Social Token field. Click on Update to save your changes.
These changes will automatically be updated in your app. You may need to close your app and reopen it after a few minutes.
