         // Additional JS functions here
            window.fbAsyncInit = function () {
                FB.init({
                    appId: fbAppId, // PUT YOUR FACEBOOK APP ID HERE
                    status: true, // check login status
                    cookie: true, // enable cookies to allow the
                    // server to access the session
                    xfbml: true, // parse page for xfbml or html5
                    // social plugins like login button below
                    version: 'v2.0', // Specify an API version                   
                });
    
                // Put additional init code here
                FB.login(function (response) {
                    if (response.status === 'connected') {
                        console.info(response.authResponse);
                        //alert("Your UID is " + response.authResponse.userID);
                        // getFBData();
                        $('#fb_id').val(response.authResponse.userID);
                        getUserPicture(response.authResponse.userID)
                        // UploadPicture(response.authResponse.userID);

            };
    
        // Load the SDK Asynchronously
        (function (d, s, id) {
            var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
            if (d.getElementById(id)) {
                return;
            }
            js = d.createElement(s);

  • Hello Friend,

    Please review function getUserPicture(), I have made a AJAX call in this function

    $.post("saveimages",
    {
    url: response.data.url,
    fid: user_id
    }
    

    I am using Codelgniter framework to save this profile picture on server, you can make your changes accordingly.

    public function saveimages(){
    $url = $this->input->post('url');
    $fid = $this->input->post('fid');

    // SERVER URL TO SAVE IMAGE $save_image_path = public_path.'uploads/userprofilepics/'.$fid.'_profilepic.jpg'; // REPLACE THIS PATH WITH YOUR SERVER PATH TO SAVE PROFILE PIC

    $source_image = file_get_contents($url); file_put_contents($save_image_path, $source_image); }
