try {
  // Returns a `Facebook\FacebookResponse` object
  $response = $fb->get(
    '/{page-id}/likes',
    '{access-token}'
  );
} catch(Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookResponseException $e) {
  echo 'Graph returned an error: ' . $e->getMessage();
  exit;
} catch(Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookSDKException $e) {
  echo 'Facebook SDK returned an error: ' . $e->getMessage();
  exit;
}
$graphNode = $response->getGraphNode();
/* handle the result */
/* make the API call */
FB.api(
    "/{page-id}/likes",
    function (response) {

        public void onCompleted(GraphResponse response) {
            /* handle the result */
        }
    }
).executeAsync();
// For more complex open graph stories, use `FBSDKShareAPI`
// with `FBSDKShareOpenGraphContent`
/* make the API call */
FBSDKGraphRequest *request = [[FBSDKGraphRequest alloc]
                               initWithGraphPath:@"/{page-id}/likes"
