Now, this step is not yet completed. Click on the accounts link which will be available below the Connections. By clicking them, it will display your page’s access token. See a sample below and note the access code which you generated. Copy them and paste it in a notepad for easy and future use. To post as a page, you require an access token of a page and not yours.

PAGE_ID is the ID of your page where you want to post. You can use the username too here.

CUSTOM_MESSAGE will be the message to be posted when you publish the animated picture.

PICTURE_ID is the value of fbid of the picture which you uploaded to your page.

CUSTOM_CAPTION can be any cation you like for the animated image you try to post.

CUSTOM_DESCRIPTION can be any text to describe the picture you post.

ACCESS_TOKEN is the one which identifies your application. The one which you generated in step 2 should be used here.
