Post on a wall using Facebook graph

I am trying to post on a wall using an http post request with the given url but I'm getting a method not implemented error. What am I doing wrong?

Assuming the user has already authorized my app and I have an access token with publish_stream permissions, is it possible to create a URL that will post to the users wall using the facebook graph?

Here is the url I am using where [userid] is the user id and [access_Token] is the access token:[userid]/feed?message=I like Cheesy Poofs&picture= Poofs Rule!&caption=Some awesome caption&description=cool description bruh&access_token=[access_token]

Edit In the link above I was missing "method=post". I now get an ID back from the following URL.[userid]/feed?method=post&message=I like Cheesy Poofs&picture= Poofs Rule!&caption=Some awesome caption&description=cool description bruh&access_token=[access_token]


You should be using post, like:

$update = $facebook->api('/[userid]/feed', 'post', 
array('message'=> 'your message here', 
'picture' => 'your picture link',
'link' => 'your link here'));

Sample using php icm signed request:


$signedRequestObject = parse_signed_request( $_POST["signed_request"],YOUR_APPLICATION_SECRET );

if ($signedRequestObject["oauth_token"]){
    // there is no token, something went wrong

$token = $signedRequestObject["oauth_token"];

$data = array(
    "message" => "happy joy joy message",
    "link" => "",
    "access_token" => $token,
    "picture" => "",
    "name"=> "funky title",
    "caption"=> "awesome caption",
    "description"=> "useful description"

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "".$id."/feed");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);
$op = curl_exec($ch);
if (!$op){
    echo "Curl Error : ".curl_error($ch);

$res = get_object_vars(json_decode((string)$op));

//used functions
function parse_signed_request($signed_request, $secret) {
  list($encoded_sig, $payload) = explode('.', $signed_request, 2); 
  $sig = $this->base64_url_decode($encoded_sig);
  $data = json_decode($this->base64_url_decode($payload), true);
  if (strtoupper($data['algorithm']) !== 'HMAC-SHA256') {
    echo  'Unknown algorithm. Expected HMAC-SHA256 : ';
    return false;
  $expected_sig = hash_hmac('sha256', $payload, $secret, $raw = true);
  if ($sig !== $expected_sig) {
    echo = 'Bad Signed JSON signature!';
    return false;
  return $data;

function base64_url_decode($input) {
  return base64_decode(strtr($input, '-_', '+/'));


Sample JS:

var body = 'Reading JS SDK documentation';
FB.api('/me/feed', 'post', { message: body }, function(response) {
  if (!response || response.error) {
    alert('Error occured');
  } else {
    alert('Post ID: ' +;

Hope it helps!
