Hi All,


I am using facebook package in R. Following is my code.


install.packages('Rfacebook',dependencies = T)


#create a favebook app and add http://localhost:1410/ to your app

fb_oauth <- fbOAuth(app_id="***",



fb_page <- getPage(page="subway", token=fb_oauth,n=50,feed = T,reactions =


I get an error when I try to get reactions (i.e., reactions=T). When I
remove the 'reactions' argument, it works.


fb_page <- getPage(page="subway", token=fb_oauth,n=50,feed = T)  works.


Please let me know why am I getting error with reactions? Also, suggest if
there are alternate packages for Facebook in R.
