I’m wondering if it’s possible to get a given user’s profile photo URL without performing a user authenticated request in v1.1 of the REST API. I see how to do it with authenticated requests, but I’m specifically looking to do this without authentication.
IN v1, this was possible with the following API:
Will this be migrated to v1.1, or is there another API call I’m missing that will enable the same?
Here’s a bit more about my scenario and why the non-authenticated part of it is important:
I’m building a service for mobile apps where we are allowing authentication through Twitter and Facebook-- the goal is to not have our own user account system. So every user is either a FB user or a Twitter user-- when displaying information about users, we want to show their profile photo. However a given user might be authenticated with FB but may see the profile photo of a different user that was authenticated with Twitter.
The facebook API provides a way to display profile photos without authentication (if the profile photo is public).
