    I have a tool that can extract all the confirmed attendees for an event using the OpenGraph API, but facebook doesn't make the "invited" category available through the API.

    Does anyone here have a script that can take a FB event ID and then scrape as many UIDs from the invited/maybe/declined categories as possible?

    I use Social Leads Freaks but it only scrapes attending people, because fb doesn't allow to see invited peolpe to an event, so I'm pretty sure there isn't a script that can do what you ask.

    That's what I use to get the confirmed attendees. I'm looking for something a bit more black hat that can extract UIDs from the Xpath. I can see them when I inspect the page code, they're just left out of the API entirely.
