php – getting facebook thumbnail profile picture

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

Does anyone know how I can get a thumbnail/avatar of a facebook user using the javascript sdk?

I know to get the full size picture I can do the folllowing:

//Get a list of all the albums
FB.api('/me/albums', function (response) {
  for (album in response.data) {

    // Find the Profile Picture album
    if (response.data[album].name == "Profile Pictures") {

      // Get a list of all photos in that album.
      FB.api(response.data[album].id + "/photos", function(response) {

        //The image link
        image = response.data[0].images[0].source;

      });
    }
  }
});

Not sure on how to get the thumbnail/avatar size. Something like a 50×50 size

How to&Answers:

You can also just use an <img> tag with a special URL to do the same thing:

<img src="http://graph.facebook.com/<UID>/picture?type=square" />

Answer:

As of August 2012, you can define custom dimensions for the user thumbnail, e.g. https://graph.facebook.com/USER_ID/picture?width=WIDTH&height=HEIGHT. Find out more, https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/api/using-pictures/.

Answer:

I did the following to accomplish the same thing:

FB.api(
      {
       method: 'fql.query',
       query: 'SELECT name,email,pic_small FROM user WHERE uid=' + uid
       // uid is the id of the user.
      },
      function(response) {
         var user = response[0];
         // user.pic_small contains the url for the small sized profile pic
      });

Answer:

Since you have the UID of the person, you can easily get the image. For example, my profile image URL should be graph.facebook.com/v2.8/1375341351/picture?type=small (now change the type parameter and enjoy different sizes.. cheers… sizes can be small, normal, album, large, square
