        curl_setopt_array($ch, array(
            CURLOPT_URL => $url,
            CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true
        $result = curl_exec($ch);
        return $result;
     $url =  “https://graph.facebook.com/oauth/access_token?client_id=myClientId&redirect_uri=myurl.php&client_secret=thisstaysaSecret;
    $access_token = callFb($url);
    $access_token = substr($access_token, strpos($access_token, “=”)+1, strlen($access_token));
    $url = “https://graph.facebook.com/search?access_token=$access_token&q=Andre&type=user”;
