Requesting Facebook user's e-mail permission

I've changed my Facebook App settings to request email permission. When I connect with Facebook from within Kinvey, it doesn't gather this info. I believe there was a change to Facebook earlier this year that makes any additional permission beyond the basics, a secondary option. How can I pass this option via your Backbone connect setup?

The e-mail will automatically be pulled from Facebook when you call the `connect` method. Note that it is possible for users *not* to expose the e-mail, in which case it will not be saved.

There is no option to manually set the permissions on the connect call. You can of course always use the [Facebook SDK]( yourself to retrieve additional user data.
