    So, i created a facebook app but i didnt really understand why an ssl certificate is required. Am accessing facebook from a https connection and my app is accessible without having any certificate. Any information about this guys? Thanks :)

    It is needed. Why exactly I don't know
    You can get a cheap one on namecheap. $7/year. I bought for the same purpose last week.

    Success

    You will need an ssl certificate compulsorily. You can purchase a ssl certificate for 2$ at namecheap and a few other sites.

    Else, you can you the shared ssl certificates you get on shared hostings.
