    When you log into a Fb app. does the app. developer have access to your ip address or are you logged in through your unique Fb id no.

    What I'd like to know is can a FB app. trace the geographical location of where you are signing in ?

      I certainly imagine that it is possible. Any site can read a user's IP address. Whether they publish it or not is a different story. But developer's apps simply display a webpage embedded in Facebook (simply put), and those web pages are more than capable of reading your IP address.
