The following steps were copied from here:

If you don't already have a Facebook Platform API key for your site, create an application with the Facebook Developer application.

Note: Even if you have created an application and received an API key, you should review steps 4 through 8 and make sure your application settings are appropriate.

1. Go to to create a new application.
2. Enter a name for your application in the Application Name field.
3. Accept the Developer Terms of Service, then click Save Changes.
4. On the Basic tab, keep all of the defaults.
5. Take note of the API Key, you'll need this shortly.
6. Click the Connect tab. Set Connect URL to the top-level directory of the site where you 
plan to implement Facebook Connect (this is usually your domain, like,
but could also be a subdirectory).
7. You should include a logo that appears on the Facebook Connect dialog.
Next to Facebook Connect Logo, click Change your Facebook Connect logo and browse to an image file.
The logo can be up to 99 pixels wide by 22 pixels tall, and must be in JPG, GIF, or PNG format.
(Filename cannot be 'icon')
8. If you plan to implement Facebook Connect across a number of subdomains of your site
(for example, and, you need to enter a Base Domain
(which would be in this case).
Specifying a base domain allows you to make calls using the PHP and JavaScript client libraries
as well as get and store session information for any subdomain of the base domain.
For more information about subdomains, see Supporting Subdomains In Facebook Connect.
9. Click Save Changes.
