Hopefully we should all know that while we have still having the offline_access permission available, the access token that we obtained normally is a short-lived one.
Wit offline_access deprecated, by default (as according to Facebook’s documentation), we should have received a token that is to be expired only after 60 days by doing a server side OAuth. However, at the early time of the migration process, it had been reported and confirmed that the token received was still a short-lived one. We had to exchange the code with Facebook server again so as to get a 60-day expiry date token.
A bug report was opened by someone earlier. It is claimed to be fixed on this Thursday (i.e. 2 days ago).
However, I just tested that by using my own application and found that the access token obtained via performing server side OAuth is still a short-lived one. My app is written by using the PHP SDK and server side OAuth is performed. So, it seems to me that the problem is not fixed – at least not completely.
Any of us can see the same result as mine?
