    Hello,

    Let's say I have a semi-targeted list of 500 email addresses.

    I would like to focus my target group and to do that I must know who are these people - young, old, single, married, male, female, white, black, etc.

    Facebook lets you search people by inputting their email addresses. Usually this allows you to see their profile picture (unless they've blocked it, but hardly anyone does that).

    I figured the best way of narrowing my target groups would be by somehow automating this process of converting email --> picture.

    The idea is to give a bot the list of 500 emails so that it could automatically extract and scrape their profile picture (assuming it found any). The pictures could then be saved with a file name that matches the email address for easy browsing and cataloging.

    Is there such a tool in existence or in development?
    Thank you so much.
