      Description

      On 10/3/2012 the Facebook API will be changed such that the pictures property on page objects will no longer be a string, but will instead be an object. This will break the existing API binding when trying to deserialize the picture property. In mid-August 2012, Facebook applied this breaking change, but apps can be reconfigured (temporarily) to opt out of the change.

      See https://developers.facebook.com/roadmap/#october-2012 for details.

      The Spring Social Facebook API binding should be fixed to address this change in time for the October 3rd change.

        For Spring Social Facebook 1.0.2 I plan to simply map the picture.data.url value to the existing String returned from the Page's getPicture() method and to also deprecate that method. Then for 1.1.0, I'll capture the whole picture object and return that in a new getPicture() method.
