Difference between 'simple' and 'with friends' on FB login

I was wondering what the differences are between ‘simple’ and ‘with friends’ in the FB login plugin?

With friends means you request the permission to access the users friends list. Generally speaking, facebook recommends you only ask the permissions you actually need. Also, you’ll be able to see users friends that signed up to your app with Facebook (change Facebook did last year), which limits the value of friends I think.

Not quite clear. Why do you think it limits the values of friends? Wouldn’t it be be valuable to see other friends who’ve signed up?

It is, but in the past apps where using this to acquire new users, and facebook doesn’t let you do that any more.


Is it possible to get additional permissions/data from Facebook? For instance, birth date? Thanks!
