        'secret' => 'xxx',
        'cookie' => true,
        'fileUpload' => 1,
        'canvas' => 1,
        'fbconnect' => 1,
        'display' => 'page',
        'scope' => 'user_about_me,email,publish_actions,publish_stream,photo_upload',
        'redirect_uri' => 'https://www.facebook.com/pages/My-Test-Page/12345?id=12345&sk=app_12345'
