Is there any permissions/information you guys don't request on Facebook Connect? The long list scared me off.

Most of it sounds like we do more than we do, but all of it is necessary up front for the things we enable after you connect. I can assure you that we don't do anything that isn't about making your music experience better.

I understand the hesitation, we try to avoid asking for anything that we don't need to make the user experience better. We don't post anything without you explicitly performing a "share to facebook" action, so you can rest easy on that front. And we ask for your profile info so that we can see what bands you already like.

That's good to know. I still wish Facebook offered a feature where you could explain why you need a permission, or better yet, let you pick which ones you agree to instead of all or nothing.
