Retrieving Friends in Friend Lists

Problem

I need to use FQL to retrieve the friends that specific users have put in their friend lists.

Solution

You can pretty easily find all of the friends that the current loggedinuser has put into friend lists:

SELECT flid, uid FROM friendlist_member WHERE flid IN
 (SELECT flid FROM friendlist WHERE owner = $uid)

Discussion

You can run this query only when uid is the current loggedinuser.
