Facebook app Like Fan Page

Hi,

I've created a FB app which is used by users to signin with facebook credentials into a website. Can I force or guide the user to like a fan page too, in order to signin, and redirect him back to the website?

thnx

When you start talking about forcing a user to like something in order to sign in it sounds pretty sleazy and ethical questions concerning user rights.  Perhaps that is why you have not received a response, and I am getting an email as designated expert for the topic to see if I can help.  However I generally pass when it comes to violating user rights.

You might want to look at more ethical means of accomplishing your goals.

I am sorry if it sounded like unethical but i've used the word guide too which implies no force.l am going to rephrase it and post it as a new question if you feel that the new question is unethical too please tell me to close it.

While guide is a softer word, it still sounds like you are requiring users to give you a like in order to signin. So basically you are gaming the system.  I assume it is part of an SEO scheme to boost rankings. If Google discovers it they will likely impose a penalty.  They may even de-index you.  As for Facebook it is a question of whether someone complains about it and they consider it abuse.  In an average month they remove millions of likes and ban thousands of accounts.
