OpenSocial Required Fields (Available (Will be released on 2011-01-17)

If your gadget is taking advantage of OpenSocial functionalities and is therefore declared as a social gadget with 'opensocial-x.x' as required:

 <Require feature="opensocial-0.9"/>

[...] you might consider restricting the vCard fields your gadget is requesting from the user's personal data. The available field names are

  • gender
  • birthday
  • emails
  • addresses
  • phoneNumbers
  • thumbnailUrl
  • photos

Applied in a gadget.xml snipplet, requesting the fields gender, emails, and the thumbnail URL will look as follows

 <Require feature="opensocial-0.8">
        <RequiredFields>
                <Field>gender</Field>
                <Field>emails</Field>
                <Field>thumbnailUrl</Field>
        </RequiredFields>
</Require>
