I need to access a user’s information from facebook from within a cron job (basically a rake task with environment access - and so similar to accessing from script/console). What I need is just the user’s name to address a newsletter properly - I would have stored that but facebook terms seem to state that i can only store the id and the proxy email. So I have the facebook id and need access to the name.
The book does suggest keeping the session in the model but that works for just an hour :(. Any ideas?
