Using Facebook to register new User on Android App

Posted 28 August 2013 - 08:23 AM

Hi

At present I have my android app set up so that the user can log in to the app via facebook. However, I want to be able to give the user an option to register with facebook also, however, there doesn't seem to be any docs on this. I have trawled through the net and I can't find anything.

Does anyone know how I could implement this or even send me on the right path? Please don't link me to the fb developer app as I can't find anything on that in relation to this.

Thanks in advance!!

Why not give them an option to create an account with you and _NOT_ force-require them to make a facebook account?

The option is there to create an account, however, I also want to provide them with the option to register via facebook. Would you have any hints?

Just link them to the facebook registration page. Typically they handle that on their own side.. you know.. so folks are not spam-creating a bajillion accounts.

I don't want them to register a new facebook account, I want them to be able to register on this app with their own fb credentials

Hmmm.. okay.. then let's step back.

You wrote this:

That would imply:

So which way is it? Is it working or not?

Why not? This is exactly what you are trying to do (well.. as much as I can tell).

If the user is a first time user they have to register as a user of the app.
I would like them to be able to register as a user of the app in two ways:
1. Through my own register system (in place)
2. Register by through fb

This will allow the user upon visiting the application for a second time to log in in one of two ways:
1. Through the app log in (in place)
2. Through fb (implemented)

The user should be able to log in either way regardless of the method they chose to register. If they registered through fb, I still want them to be able to login through my login.

I'm not quite sure what you mean here. I hope I'm not confusing the situation.

Okay.. if you can let folks log into their facebook account - why not just scrape some data off their profile, fling it through your registration process, and be done with it? I mean that's the whole point of "login via facebook" is you can prefill the info you need with data they have sitting in a fb profile.
