    I am trying out adding facebook integration in an app using the new (beta) facebook ios sdk 3.0. All I would like to is post a status update to facebook. I used a FBLoginView to login to facebook. I put my app id in the plist as instructed on facebook. I put in some code to post to facebook.

    Code:
    (void)viewDidLoad
    {
    [super viewDidLoad];
    NSArray *perms;
    perms = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"status_update", nil];
    FBLoginView *loginview =
    [[FBLoginView alloc] initWithPermissions:perms];
     
    loginview.frame = CGRectOffset(loginview.frame, 5, 5);
    loginview.delegate = self;
     
    [self.view addSubview:loginview];
    // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
     
    }
     
    - (IBAction)poststatus:(UIButton *)sender {
    NSString *message = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"Test staus update"];
     
    [FBRequestConnection startForPostStatusUpdate:message
                                completionHandler:^(FBRequestConnection *connection, id result, NSError *error) {
     
                                    [self showAlert:message result:result error:error];
     
                                }];
    }
    - (void)showAlert:(NSString *)message
          result:(id)result
            error:(NSError *)error {
     
    NSString *alertMsg;
    NSString *alertTitle;
    if (error) {
        alertMsg = error.localizedDescription;
        alertTitle = @"Error";
    } else {
        NSDictionary *resultDict = (NSDictionary *)result;
        alertMsg = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"Successfully posted '%@'.\nPost ID: %@",
                    message, [resultDict valueForKey:@"id"]];
        alertTitle = @"Success";
    }
     
    UIAlertView *alertView = [[UIAlertView alloc] initWithTitle:alertTitle
                                                        message:alertMsg
                                                      delegate:nil
                                              cancelButtonTitle:@"OK"
                                              otherButtonTitles:nil];
    [alertView show];
    }
    
    The odd thing is, this code works ONCE. After authenticating the user for the first time, I can post ONE status update successfully. After that, all subsequent attempts will fail with a FBiOSSDK error 5 (in the console, Error: HTTP status code:400). The only way to fix this is to remove the app from the facebook account and re-authenticate. I'm not sure what the problem is. I looked online for solutions but couldn't find anything. If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. Thanks
