Hello, I 'm creating FaceBook like application and everything is centered around Person model. Status, Posts, Comments, Emails, Education, Employments, etc, are referenced to a Person model. Now I'm have an Account model created via devise to handle authentication. I'm not so sure how should I link between Person and Account! Should I replace Person with Account model and make reference to all other models? But, then difficulty I'm having is that all the actions will be generated by a Person, not an Account. I really like to separate Peron and Account. Account is suppose to really meant for authentication purposes only. One thing I'm thinking is to create a record in Person model, whenever an Account is registered. But then how do I override devise controller to insert a record in Person model? Any advise is greatly appreciated how to handle this situation.
