we now can connect our site with these new Apps by setting the Access Tokens for each service.

Facebook Access Token

Now that you already successfully completed the external steps of creating a Facebook App, then we can move on and do the last steps in entering the obtained App ID and App Secret, in our redSOCIALSTREAM configuration.

As you can see below in the configuration screen we have fields matching the values we were provided at our Facebook App page.

You should now enter - App ID - App Secret

Then you click Save at the top right toolbar in the configuration page.
Clicking save will save the values to the database, and they should be visible in the fields where they were entered after clicking save. Now you can click the 'Close' button.

Next you go to the 'Access Token' page.

Here you should (1) mark the tick box in front of Facebook Access Token, and (2) click the 'Access Token' icon at the top right.

Twitter Access Token

Now that you created and configured you Twitter app., you just need this last step to finalise the connection between your site and your app. In case you didnt already fill in the config details for 'Consumer key' and 'Consumer secret', then you will first have to fill in these at the redSOCIALSTREAM config page.
