Thanks for writing to us.
This method is deprecated due to permission changed in Facebook app. Facebook has restrict permission to get the information through graph api in version 2.0 and above. However, you can solve this issue by saving the Facebook information of user in storage service. And fetch it back all the information using query interface. 
Let us know if it helps.

This works, but it'd help if you guys would fix it to do this behind the scenes for us...
Hello Hugh,

Thanks for your suggestion. Looks like a valid usecase. We will put this in our backlog & based on future request, we will plan it to put in our release.

Do you have an example of how we would store the information and then fetch it? I'm not really sure about all the information that's needed and how to actually resolve the issue once I have it.
Please have a look at the below link which have the sample project of Global Leaderboard integration and let me know if it helps.
