Accessing Facebook basic information
How can I access the basic information of a user without using authentication mechanism (no access token). Either graph api or by using FQL, doesn't matter.
Flow of the program:
- the client logs into the system
- enters a facebook id in a text field
- hits submit
- system returns the basic information, no authentication is being done
you can not do that. Basic information about a user needs authentication. The only action you can do without authentication is retrieving public information - however this is limited to the privacy settings for each user - ie. it depends on what information the user has made public.
