Hi Guys

I have th below code and i am trying to post to a fan page on facebook but it gives me an error of("invalidate parameters")

Please can you assist?

            string app_id = "xxxxxxx";
            string app_secret = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx";
            string scope = "publish_stream,manage_pages";

            if (Request["code"] == null)
                Response.Redirect(string.Format("https://graph.facebook.com/oauth/authorize?client_id={0}&redirect_uri={1}&scope={2}", app_id, Request.Url.AbsoluteUri, scope));
                Dictionary<string, string> tokens = new Dictionary<string, string>();

                string url = string.Format("https://graph.facebook.com/oauth/access_token?client_id={0}&redirect_uri={1}&scope={2}&code={3}&client_secret={4}", app_id, Request.Url.AbsoluteUri, scope, Request["code"].ToString(), app_secret);

                HttpWebRequest request = System.Net.WebRequest.Create(url) as HttpWebRequest;

                using (HttpWebResponse response = request.GetResponse() as HttpWebResponse)
                    StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream());

                    string vals = reader.ReadToEnd();

                    foreach (string token in vals.Split('&'))
                        tokens.Add(token.Substring(0, token.IndexOf("=")), token.Substring(token.IndexOf("=") + 1, token.Length - token.IndexOf("=") - 1));

                string access_token = tokens["access_token"];

                var client = new FacebookClient(access_token);

                var parameters = new Dictionary<string, object>();

                parameters["picture"] = "http://www.yaplex.com/logos/yaplex-logo-with-text-small.png";
                //parameters["link"] = "http://yaplex.com/";
                //parameters["name"] = "[name] Facebook name...";
                //parameters["caption"] = " Facebook caption";
                //parameters["description"] = "[description] Facebook description...";
                parameters["message"] = "[message] Facebook message...";

                client.Post("/me/feed", parameters);

        catch (FacebookOAuthException ex)

Please let me know what version of FB  API you are using and also version of PHP installed on you server where you are running this code. I think it maybe a version issue. I came across something like this before and it turned out to be the fact that the version of API we used for FB was not compatible with the PHP version we had on the server.
