    I am also keen on adding permission and even text to the approval facebook pop-up. So please yes I also would like to know how to add requests for information other than the preset email. For instance the feed to the users wall for instance.

    Where can I find how to code this in? I looked first in the facebook.php and tried on row 420 where the login array is but I must have missunderstood how to or where to add codes of requests so. Please I need some help.

    I just figured this out recently. Hope this helps someone else.

    I directly edited two files in the plugin:
    Need to extend the scope to gain additional permissions on line 48. Use this facebook api reference.
    window.open('https://graph.facebook.com/oauth/authorize?client_id=' + client_id + '&redirect_uri=' + redirect_uri + '&scope=email,user_location,user_website,user_about_me',

    Add additional json variables after line 82.
    $sc_about_me = $fb_json->{ 'bio' };

    And then on line 175, add your variables to the array:
    'description' => $sc_about_me

    I did encounter a couple problems when I tried to get user_location. First, the login attempt loaded a white screen and the user was not created. Secondly, I am saving the location value to a custom author meta field and I can't seem to get it to store any kind of value. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
