Can I retrieve user email address?

Hi All,

Just started to create the single signon part on our site with facebook. It is using asp.net 2.0.

Assuming the user has facebook account.

What I need to do is once the user click the "connect to facebook" botton, I need to create an account at our site for this user. The user's email address is the key to create this account.

questions are 1) How can I abtain this user's email address? 2)  is it possible to  "System.Xml.Ling" on .net 2.0?

Thank you in advance.

Ellen

You can't get their actual email address.  You can get a "proxied" email address and send them email using that (facebook relays the email), or through the api's Notifications.Send method
