    I don't think this is going to change until VBF-469 is resolved.

    IB is using friend data in an attempt to associate other forums in the "Friends' Forums" section.

    In the future, if this feature is turned off, so should the additional user info required.

    Hey same opinion here!

    It would be good to be serious.

    I don´t think that friends likes and interests are important for the app! This looks more than a data collecting software than a serious one.

    This should be enough! In germany people don´t like that you give the data of your friends for the app

    Your basic info
    Your email address
    Your profile info: activities, interests

    Reduce amount of private user info the app requires?

    The feedback I've got so far is that users are worried about how much information the vB Facebook app is requesting in order for a FB user to gain access:

    Your basic info
    Your email address
    Your profile info: activities, groups, interests and likes
    Friends' interests
    Friends' likes

    I did a quick search but couldn't see this raised before. Is it possible to reduce this? I don't need to know that info about my users and using this app with 3.8.7 means users are redirected to our regular sign-up/login pages anyway. Can I reduce it just so it's "Basic Info" or perhaps I don't even need that?
