Also, note that Facebook can't set a cookie on a forum member's browser as long as he doesn't visit Facebook. A cookie is domain-dependent and can be accessed just by the domain that set it, so it can't "gather" information from another domain. It can be set by an "image beacon" as he said but it is used to track the user's interests (it can "send" to Facebook just the URL it has been set), and nothing else.

Thank you for your response, and thank you for taking the time to build a fantastic plugin.

To everyone facing this issue on MyFacebook, MyTwitter and/or MyGoogle+ Connect, it's an incompatibility error with Default Avatar plugin. To solve, edit inc/plugins/default_avatar.php, line 204:

$set_avatar = get_default_avatar_data();

Add above:

if (!$user_info) {

This is a temporary workaround as I will try to fix this directly on my plugins.
Hi all,

Read the documentation carefully. The URL you have added to Facebook does not match your actual board's URL. They must match exactly, "www" included.
Quick announcement: MyFacebook Connect, together with the whole My* Connect series, is fully compatible with MyBB 1.8 and won't require a major update. Just some backend things are broken due to the Prototype -> jQuery migration, but they will be fixed with a minor update.
