SocialMediaData not working like it used to...

Hello, I recently upgraded to version 10.1 and evaluated SocialMediaData["Facebook", "FriendNetwork"].

This used to return a big graph with a lot of friends (pretty much like the example on the help section), but now when I evaluate it I get a small 4 node graph. I went to the Wolfram Alpha site and imputed facebook report and I get my basic info but nothing on friends, the phrase "no friend information available" is all around, so I guess the problem is not related to the Mathematica version I am using.

My guess is that facebook is restricting access to my data, and I have no idea how to get around this. Any ideas on how to get around this issue would be welcomed.

Thanks in advance.

Ok, thanks a lot. Shame, I used it on a couple of courses and it was very good.

The function SocialMediaData[] doesn´t seem to be working at all in version 11.3. June 2020.

There's no way to get around this. Facebook has changed their API and what kinds of things you can access using it.
