SocialMediaData function not working for Facebook

When I call the SocialMediaData function it returns blank: SocialMediaData["Facebook", "Friends"] gives {}

I get the authentication window for facebook and paste the authentication code in the window just as it asks, it seems to accept it but then reterns {} in my program. Doing the similar call for twitter works just fine.

Im using V 9.0.1 but have also tried this on a trial of the latest Mathematica and encountered the same problem. I've read up as many similar posts as I could find, there was a comment that Facebook has changed its privacy settings as to not divulge as much data as it used to but even so I should still be able to access a list of my friends?

Would very much appreciate some help, Thank you!!
