    collection.findOne({'email': fbEmail}, function(err, item){
        var providerId =;
        console.log("facebook id should be: "+providerId);

            collection.update({email:fbEmail, '':""}, {$set: {"": fbId}}, {safe:true}, function(err){
                    console.log("id updated!");
        }else{ //creates a new user
            console.log("creating a new account...");

                'email': fbEmail,
                        'facebook': {'id': fbId},                            
                        'twitter': {'id': ""}                                
            }, {upsert:true}, function(err, doc){
                    console.log("Error finding email "+err);


One (the first one) of accounts collection documents has provider=null. You can modify findOne condition the following way to avoid it:

collection.findOne({'email': fbEmail, 'provider': {$exists: true}}, ...

Note, that this modification will just skip all accounts without provider field set (or with set to null).
