scraping Facebook
#1
Hi, I was wondering if there is a way of using scrapebox to scrape facebook users by interest.  Thank you. Jackie

What do you want to scrape, like a facebook url or the name of the user or ?

I am looking for facebook people who have an interest in health care products so that I can add them as friends. Thank you

I mean maybe you could do this. You would need to load in the exact urls and then you could scrape their usernames or facebook ids etc..

There are no limits to the crawling though, so if you use like the grab links by crawling a site it wont stay inside the facebook group. Also quite possible the rest of the members beyond the first page may be loaded dynamically as you scroll down, with a script. Scrapebox does not support scripts so scrapebox will not be able to see those.

Hi,
Could you be more specific as to how it could be done.  I am a complete newbie. Thanks

This video talks about harvesting

do you are harvesting from facebook for your keyword I guess, I mean Ive never done what your asking and I rarely even use facebook as I don't have time. So I guess you can try

site:facebook.com health care products

but I suppose thats going to bring back all manner of stuff, so results may vary.

Else I assume you already have a list of urls of people interested in health care products, as Im not sure how you would get those urls. Perhaps from a facebook group around the same, but the group would have to be public for scrapebox to see it and scrape data.

As for getting the facebook username or whatetever it is you are after you can try the custom data scraper
