Getting information from the user

Getting information from the user

Hi support,

I'm searching for a joomla module/component with social media log in so i run into your website but i have a question about your product.
When a user is connecting with the social media log in what kind of date is going into the database?
Is it possible to also get this data:

Name user
Lastname user
E-mail user
Location (city and country) of the user
Facebook likes of the user
Twitter follows of the user
Google + of the user

Really looking forward to your reply.
Looks like a wonderfull/perfect product for me.

Greetings Geppie

Re: Getting information from the user

There's a ton of information you can get from the different social networks. Basically, all of the public user information is available from Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn. That includes name, location (city and country), hometown, education, interests and much more.

Each network doesn't obviously have all that information.. like Twitter, which doesn't have a way to add your education, but both Google, LinkedIn and Facebook can provide that.

Some caveats are that Twitter will not provide the user's email address. You can import their other profile information, but JFBConnect will present a mini-form to ask the user their email address in that case.

Likes can be obtained from Facebook, but it's not something JFBConnect does directly. Likes is a very open ended result, which means you'd need to have something meant to parse out that data. JFBConnect has an API that makes it easy to get that information, but you'd need a developer to help implement it if you wanted to store all of the user's public Likes.

With Facebook, they do have different categories of interests for movies, books, religion and other data which JFBConnect can import into your database or 3rd party profile extension.

I hope that helps explain. If you have any other questions though, just let me know.

Thanks,
Alex

Re: Getting information from the user

Hi Alex,

First of all thank you for your quick and clear answer..!
Sounds great, a customer asks for this technology so it's great i already found a solution for this project current/big_smile
I think i can manage to get the likes as well.
I have one more question, is the information from the user up to date or is it only getting the information one time from the user when he is loging in for the first time?

Cheers.

Re: Getting information from the user

The profile information can be updated each time the user logs in so that it's mostly fresh if the user visits your site on a regular basis.

I hope that helps, but if you have any other questions, just let me know.

Thanks,
Alex
