Users facebook name or profile link not showing to other users

Not able to show one users facebook profile and name to other users. Is facebook not allowing this.

what i did was , i copied the first & last name, profile pic, email in my database.
Once the user registers for the first time with facebook, i copy all the data and use that instead of using facebook’s first name, last name and so on.

Is there any reason why Facebook’s first name second name etc doesn’t work???

Which would lead to better performance (using theirs vs storing in our own Db)?

i believe that facebooks info work, as long as the users is logged in for this reason i choose to copy the data in my database :slight_smile:
no clue about the performance but i don t see any issue in copying the data and use it

Yeh so if the User is not logged in, I wouldn’t expect the Facebook info to work …

thats correct, at least for my app
