Hello fellow bubblers,
First of all I want to thank the Bubble team for the amazing work they’re doing here, I’m sure Bubble will be the tool that will change building software for good.
I’m currently in the process of building an app where users can review their coworkers. But what I can’t figure out yet is how to give content to the first users, since they will be making reviews about other people but there won’t be other users at the beginning. I thought about fetching their facebook friends’ names and adding them to a data type “review receivers” but I just found it on the forum that facebook doesn’t allow this, it only allows you to fetch friends who are using the app. Is there any way to do fetch the names of the user’s facebook friends? And if not do you have any other suggestion for me to solve this issue (I thought about fetching their contacts but it won’t be as good and accurate as the facebook friends, especially that people aren’t generally comfortable allowing apps to access their contacts.
Any idea would be helpful, and I thank very much in advance.
Hello fellow bubblers,
Up, anyone? please …
Not sure if that will help, but maybe that’s what you’re looking for:
By default, Facebook only grants you 3 authorization:
If you want to access more, it’s possible, but you have to submit your case to facebook, and they’ll manually review and approve it or not.
Check here: https://developers.facebook.com/apps/yourapp_id/review-status/
I think there is an extra authorization needed to do what you need, it might be somewhere here.
Is there any way to do fetch the names of the user’s facebook friends?
No, Facebook removed that ability entirely from their API.
And if not do you have any other suggestion for me to solve this issue (I thought about fetching their contacts but it won’t be as good and accurate as the facebook friends, especially that people aren’t generally comfortable allowing apps to access their contacts.
Given that you’re talking about coworkers, why not use LinkedIn? I’m not certain but I think their API lets you access friends’ info.
@GammaMat @dambusmedia Thanks very much for your answers guys. I think I found a way to do it . Indeed facebook doesn’t allow fetching friends anymore but he allows using the friend list to mention (tag) the user’s facebook friends in your app. It’s with taggable_friends. I’m saying this so that Bubblers who encounter the same issue in the future find the answer. It’s the same technique used by those personality tests on facebook (Who among your friends loves you the most etc.).
Thanks again for taking the time to reply !
