I am using Sitecore 8.2.1. I have followed the steps mentioned in the Social Content posting from Sitecore documentation.

I am able to post the content messages on my FB page. However, likes and comments to that messages are not flowing back to Sitecore when I click "Refresh Statistics".

enter image description here

I am not using social login. Are there any permissions required in FB app to have these statistics working?

Note: - My FB app is live and in non-dev status.
