Permissions

  • The user in the request and the session user must both have granted user_friends permission to the app.
  • Additionally, the response will only include any mutual friends who have granted user_friends to the app.
  • If you want to call this endpoint on behalf two app-users who are not friends, then you must provide the appsecret_proof parameter along with the user access token when making the request. This means you must call this endpoint from your server.
