Getting username and profile picture from Facebook iOS 7


This is the simplest way I've found to get the user's profile picture.

[[FBRequest requestForMe] startWithCompletionHandler:^(FBRequestConnection *connection, NSDictionary<FBGraphUser> *FBuser, NSError *error) {    if (error) {      // Handle error    }    else {      NSString *userName = [FBuser name];      NSString *userImageURL = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"https://graph.facebook.com/%@/picture?type=large", [FBuser objectID]];    }  }];

Other query parameters that can be used are:

  • type: small, normal, large, square
  • width: < value >
  • height: < value >
    • Use both width and height to get a cropped, aspect fill image


if ([FBSDKAccessToken currentAccessToken]) {    [[[FBSDKGraphRequest alloc] initWithGraphPath:@"me" parameters:@{ @"fields" : @"id,name,picture.width(100).height(100)"}]startWithCompletionHandler:^(FBSDKGraphRequestConnection *connection, id result, NSError *error) {        if (!error) {            NSString *nameOfLoginUser = [result valueForKey:@"name"];            NSString *imageStringOfLoginUser = [[[result valueForKey:@"picture"] valueForKey:@"data"] valueForKey:@"url"];            NSURL *url = [[NSURL alloc] initWithURL: imageStringOfLoginUser];            [self.imageView setImageWithURL:url placeholderImage: nil];        }    }];}


Make the following Graph request:

/me?fields=name,picture.width(720).height(720){url}

And you get really large and cool profile picture:

{  "id": "459237440909381",  "name": "Victor Mishin",   "picture": {    "data": {      "url": "https://fbcdn-profile-a.akamaihd.net/hprofile-ak-xpf1/t31.0-1/c628.148.1164.1164/s720x720/882111_142093815957080_669659725_o.jpg"    }  }}

P.S. /me?fields=picture.type(large) doesn't do it for me.
