I need to retrieve a Facebook album using FQL.
This is your most basic
SELECT aid, cover_pid, name, link FROM album WHERE owner = $uid;
SELECT * isn’t supported in FQL, you’ll have to list out the
actual fields you’re looking for. This would be enough to let you
display someone’s albums with links back to the original. Remember
that this query will only return albums that the current
loggedinuser has permission to see.
