Hi Experts, when we login on facebook, the login form post a parameter called "qsstamp". The value of this parameter is calculated by a javascript, something like this: 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

I could not figure out how this value is calculated. Could someone help me?

Thanks

I would recommend that you start here with the faceBook API and SDK

The value is more than likely caculated on the client side after making calls to the Server
my apologies for my communication being unclear.
 after running  through the SDK and API it doesn't look like They  reveal how that algorithm is calculated.
