Getting user's Personal info from Facebook in iOS

I am quite new to objective-C and iPhone Development environment.

I am implementing Facebook login in my app to get User's name, Email and profile Picture. I have successfully implemented login Part and have received name and User ID of the person.

Now i want to get User's Email and Profile Picture from Facebook.But i am not having any Idea how to get it.I am using Facebook IOS SDK v4.0.

How can i fetch User's Profile picture and Email Id from Facebook when i am having User ID?

Answer Source

To get user Email ID you must ask permission for email while logging.

FBSDKLoginButton *loginView = [[FBSDKLoginButton alloc] init];
loginView.readPermissions =  @[@"email"];
loginView.frame = CGRectMake(100, 150, 100, 40);
[self.view addSubview:loginView];

You can get user email Id in New SDK using GraphPath.

[[[FBSDKGraphRequest alloc] initWithGraphPath:@"me" parameters:nil]
         startWithCompletionHandler:^(FBSDKGraphRequestConnection *connection, id result, NSError *error) {

             if (!error) {
                 NSLog(@"fetched user:%@  and Email : %@", result,result[@"email"]);
         }
         }];
    }

result would get you all the user Details and result[@"email"] would get you the email for logged in user.

To get Profile picture you can use

NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"https://graph.facebook.com/%@/picture?type=normal",result[@"id"]]];
NSData  *data = [NSData dataWithContentsOfURL:url];
_imageView.image = [UIImage imageWithData:data]; 

or u can also use FBSDKProfilePictureView to get profile Picture by passing user profile Id:

FBSDKProfilePictureView *profilePictureview = [[FBSDKProfilePictureView alloc]initWithFrame:_imageView.frame];
[profilePictureview setProfileID:result[@"id"]];
[self.view addSubview:profilePictureview];

Refer to :https://developers.facebook.com/docs/facebook-login/ios/v2.3#profile_picture_view

or u can also get both by passing as parameters

[[[FBSDKGraphRequest alloc] initWithGraphPath:@"me"
                                           parameters:@{@"fields": @"picture, email"}]
         startWithCompletionHandler:^(FBSDKGraphRequestConnection *connection, id result, NSError *error) {
             if (!error) {
                 NSString *pictureURL = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[result objectForKey:@"picture"]];

                 NSLog(@"email is %@", [result objectForKey:@"email"]);

                 NSData  *data = [NSData dataWithContentsOfURL:[NSURL URLWithString:pictureURL]];
                 _imageView.image = [UIImage imageWithData:data];

             }
             else{
                 NSLog(@"%@", [error localizedDescription]);
             }
         }];
