Step 4: Create a new app, and give it a name and namespace (no CAPS allowed with the namespace).
Step 5: Once that’s done, click on the “Get Started using open graph” under the “Open Graph” header.
Step 6: You will then be asked to create a test action for your app, like “read” a “book”.
Step 7: Next, you’ll be met with a config page of your selected action. Navigate through that page and the next three pages of settings.
