Requesting user email from Facebook

Hi Kinvey Team,

Could you confirm whether your current implementation of "connect" request the user's email?

There was an old thread that said you did. (

However, during my testing I could never get an email returned by Facebook even though my test user has everything set to Public.

We seem to be getting the default "public_profile", which doesn't include the email (needs to be requested explicitly in Kinvey's call to Facebook) in what's returned in _socialidentity.

I'm not certain where the problem is, but knowing how you guys are calling Facebook would help. Thanks!

Yes, Kinvey only returns the `public_profile`, and it looks like the latest Facebook Graph API does not include any e-mail address any more.
