    Hi,
    I’m creating a web app, and I need to know if I can collect the Educational Info from facebook to the register plugin, and then automatically add it to the personal profile of the user, with the Facebook permission?
    Is it available on pro? Or there’s no way to do it?

    Thank you for the attention.
    Congratz for this amazing plugin 😀

    Hi,

    Thanks for the compliment.

    This isn’t possible out of the box, and is only possible by editing the core plugin files. What you would need to do is;

    * Edit the JS file regarding the FB permissions and specifically request those.
    * Then do something with those requested permissions.

    Are you referring to the “user_education_history” as seen in the FB developer docs

    From the developer docs:

    user_education_history

    Provides access to a person’s education history through the education field on the User object.

    Review
    If your app requests this permission Facebook will have to review how your app uses it.

    Common Usage
    * Surface content of relevance to alumni.
    * Help people connect with other people with a common education history.

    This may be something I plan on adding, as I’m looking to re-vamp the plugin.
