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:@"", [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
