So how can you access those data in your FB account via your application?
Here comes the role of API, Facebook provides an interface (URL/Graph API) that gives you all the intended details of your account, those can be used in any application. So your work is just to call the API provides by the client (here Facebook) and to use the response in your application. That’s it.
