// Get User ID
$user = $facebook->getUser();

if ($user) {
  try {
    // Proceed knowing you have a logged in user who's authenticated.
    $user_profile = $facebook->api('/me');
  } catch (FacebookApiException $e) {
    $user = null;

// Login or logout url will be needed depending on current user state.
if ($user) {
  $logoutUrl = $facebook->getLogoutUrl(array(
      'next'   => 'http://unity.mppsaalk.se', // URL to which to redirect the user after logging out
} else {
  $loginUrl = $facebook->getLoginUrl(array('scope'=> 'publish_stream',  'redirect_uri'   => 'http://unity.mppsaalk.se',
) );

// This call will always work since we are fetching public data.
$naitik = $facebook->api('/naitik');

Make sure you've registered your application with facebook, and listed your url's in the application properties.
