Connect to Facebook for contact details

Dear all,

I have installed QVSource and successfully connected to Facebook.

Could you show me how to retrieve the contact details (like name, telephone, email, & etc) of all people who have posted comments on a particular Facebook site ?

Many thanks,

Cliff

Re: Connect to Facebook for contact details

Hi Cliff,

This sort of personal information is generally not available through the Facebook API, especially for posters on a facebook fan page/site who ofter you will not be directly connected to.

You can get their name from the user table (based on their ID) and if you are lucky you might get their gender.

Thanks, Chris. What is the roadmap to include more information ?

Hi Cliff,

This isn't really a QVSource issue/limitation - it's down to Facebook. I think it's unlikely the situation will change but can't speak on behalf of them really.
