Go to components > myApi > connect and several different tabs are available for you the edit your settings

 

Connect users

This tab shows a list of joomla users that have linked their facebook profiles to the site, as an admin you are not able to add a new link between a facebook profile and joomla user, this can only be done by the facebook users on the front end.  However you can unlink facebook accounts from joomla account.  Just check the boxes next to the links you want to destroy and click unlink accounts.  This does not delete the joomla user account or facebook profile.

 

myApi

Here you can change your api and secret key, this si not recommended and only necessary if your are deleting or changing a facebook application

If the plugin is installed and enabled you can automatically add facebook comments and share buttons to all articles.  You can also choose specific sections or categories to show them on or just shown them on all.

Please not that you can add share buttons to all articles but comments are not rendered if the article is being displayed in a blog or category format, this is due to presentational issues.  Comments will only be visible on full page view.

 

myApiUser

This tab handles the settings for the plugin plg_myapiuser please make sure that the plugin is installed and enabled by checking extensions > plugins

This module brings  in all the javascript needed to facebook connect and will parse facebook markup into viewable form.  You can choose extended permission from this tab.  Extended permissions allow your website even more access to your users.  When ever a user clicks on the facebook connect button from myApiFbLogin they will be prompted to grant these permissions and if the refuse will not be granted access to your site facebook connect features.  It is recommended you always insist your users grant the publish stream, email and offline access permissions.
