Dear Mr Paul,

I logged in to Scribd via API with Scribd account (I regged before) perfectly but failed with facebook account. Can you fix it in the next version of API? Thank you so much.

I'm not sure if the API supports logging in via Facebook.  I certainly don't see anything in their documentation to suggest it.

I've asked their support about it.  If it does, I'll update the library.

The response I received is:

No, I'm sorry but it's not possible to authenticate against a linked Facebook account using the user.login method. For what it's worth, if a user currently ONLY logs into Scribd using Facebook, that user can go to their Account Settings page [] to make sure they've set a Scribd password, then obtain their Scribd username from the “Profile” tab [ ]. The user.login method can then be used with these credentials to login to the account.
I hope this helps!
