    I was doing some researching and saw this video about the fanharvest app. It could do some amazing things with facebook. Sinister and brilliant at the same time as they put it.



    With the app, for instance you could go to your competitor's facebook page and scrape users who commented on certain posts on that page. Because those are the people most likely to engage with your brand. Like I said amazing. I went to the site and they no longer have that functionality... Some may call it re-targeting.

    Granted this video is a couple years old, but does anybody know if there's a bot or app has that competitor commenter-scraping capability that fan harvest once had?

    Thanks guys.

    Let's say i write a script that can do this, what is the advantage? How can we use scraped information for our benefit?

    According to the video, you can take that list of facebook id's and create a FB campaign to just those user ids. That way you're narrowing down your target to the people more likely to engage with your brand. What's even better is that you can choose those fb users who comment on several of your competitors posts. Those people are called brand-agnostic...and are not loyal to any one brand which is an even better for more ROI.

    Where can I find new software like this? I currently do it manually and use a script to add all likers on competitors page.

    Yea, so what I do is add the people who like the post of competitors to a dummy page. Usually post that are similar to the what I post.
