I’m using the Graph API, but I can’t figure out how to get a logged-in users email address.
The intro to Graph states “The Graph API can provide access to all of the basic account registration data you would typically request in a sign-up form for your site, including name, email address, profile picture, and birthday”
All well and good, but how do I access that info?
This is what I have so far:
$json = $facebook->api('/me'); $first = $json['first_name']; // gets first name $last = $json['last_name'];
The only way to get the users e-mail address is to request extended permissions on the email field. The user must allow you to see this and you cannot get the e-mail addresses of the user’s friends.
You can do this if you are using Facebook connect by passing scope=email in the get string of your call to the Auth Dialog.
