Welcome mail with facebook login

I have signup and login with Facebook, How do do I make a workflow for sending welcome mail for a new signup with Facebook? Since the Facebook combine both login and signup I can not use this workflow path?

Maybe create a yes/no field on the user data type that is flipped the first time they log in, and the email is only triggered if that field is set to no? That way it only fires off the very first time.

I’ve seen other apps use the Facebook to authenticate, but still capture the user’s email address in a separate step for this exact reason. In fact, I believe Pivotal Tracker does this (one of the tools my day job makes). So they’d authenticate with Facebook, use that to login and such, but you’d get their email on file as part of the registration in a separate, manual step.
