I found its solution myself. Developer need to follow following steps:

  1. Download facebook sdk for php from
  2. Run following snippet:


require_once "facebook-php-sdk/facebook.php";

$facebook = new Facebook();

$app_id = YOUR_APP_ID;

$app_secret = YOUR_APP_SECRET;

$app_access_token = $app_id . '|' . $app_secret;

$response = $facebook->api( '/RECEIVER_USER_ID/notifications', 'POST', array(

                'template' => 'You have received a new message.',

                'href' => 'RELATIVE URL',

                'access_token' => $app_access_token
            ) );    

if everything works fine then you will get following output:


    [success] => 1

This is an updated code of @Aakash response to this question.

require_once __DIR__ . '/src/Facebook/autoload.php'; // download official fb sdk for php @
$fb = new Facebook\Facebook([
  'app_id' => '18341642425638', // sample app id
  'app_secret' => '1a8a4037df4d49e5712310c8ad7a62f', // sample app secret
  'default_graph_version' => 'v2.12',

try {
  // Returns a `Facebook\FacebookResponse` object
  $response = $fb->post('/{user_id}/notifications?access_token=1X34XXXXXX25X38|kxXXxxXXXXX3Y&href=&template=@[user_id] Message to display (180 Characters))', 'user_app_token');

} catch(Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookResponseException $e) {
  echo 'Graph returned an error: ' . $e->getMessage();
} catch(Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookSDKException $e) {
  echo 'Facebook SDK returned an error: ' . $e->getMessage();


$response variable should return an array with only one element "success" => 1.

All the necessary variables are available here.

You can try a simulation here and send to yourself notifications.

here the documentation.
