Default Facebook like get coins

Hi brilliant developers out there,

I am interested in integrating "Like Facebook page, and I will give free coins" types of features into my game.

Where can I find the SDK or the manual for it?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi,

I have seen many apps where is no real need to like the fb page.

The in-game currency is given to users after they click that link to fbpage.

This same method is used to get 5 stars reviews but not so sure what Apple thinks about that.

We have done both of these things in several games. In the past, both were accepted fine. However, Apple has in the last six months started failing submissions that include incentivised reviews, even if you are not prompting people to "give us a 5 star review for coins". Giving coins for liking a Facebook page continues to be fine.

In fact, asking people to give you 5 stars review doesn't quarantine a 5 stars review will be yours. :P

Yes, that's it. The player will be given the coin when they click the link. It doesn't care whether the player will actualy like the page (or give a review) or not.

Do someone actually implement "giving coins only after they get a like on facebook"? Is there an example (game or apps) which implements that kind of methods?
