    I know there is no official way. Maybe someone has cracked the code so to speak and knows an alternative way?

    Thanks!

    The best way is to find/gather a set of IDs, and then either have someone programme(hire a freelancer forum) or create your own program to visit the profile, check the age and filter it into predetermined categories.
    i.e. 15-24, 25-40, 41-70, 70+

    Heheh good thinking. Already tried that. Low success rate. 85% of people dont list age.

    Have you tried using the DOB, and then simply using "2010" as a constant and taking away the 3rd string in the DOB from the "2010" constant?

    Alot more profiles are likely to list their DOB, as in (12.03.90, for example).
    You could then have "2010" as a constant(something which never changes), use a get request to the /profileid & v=info, extract the year, store it in a list.
    Once the program is finished a simple loop.
    Code:
    Do Until list1.listcount = 0
    list2.additem(2010(constant) - list1.list(0))
    list1.removeitem(1)
    loop
    
    Following this you would determine which categories you wish to set in regard to sorting the ids.
    A few case where or if else statements should help you achieve that.

    Nah, what I am saying is that most profiles don't have bday listed in any way shape of form. Many profiles are very locked up due to privacy issues.

    You can not filter facebook users as per age, Facebook remove that option few months ago.
