    I heard the FB lead Chef is still working with version 2 .

    If this is true then the first big casualty should have been FBLC since they were really aggressive in advertising and were using FB ads to promote themselves.

    I'm using FB Lead Chef, works perfectly. I'll just scrape a ton of lists while this still works :)

    I'll take my chances. Why the hell do they let you insert an UID list if you're not supposed to scrape them. How else would you get them?

    Edit: Through an app, that wasn't so hard.

    Well if they decided to make it illegal to scrape them, then the logical conclusion is that it's illegal to use them.

    However if it still works to upload them and get ads approved then that's fine i guess :)

    But the signs are not good if they close down scrapers...

    I think whole story in misunderstood here.

    FB blocked UID scraping application FaceSniper.

    So FB is against applications and not against users using UID's scraped from such applications because it will be impossible for FB to prove that user used scraping applications for those UID's.

    Now the question as to why the developer's personal account was disabled is easy. FB knew he owns the application and so all those users directly concerned with said application will come under fire for sure.

    So no alarm bells yet for users.

    Yeah, going through that image, i guess now facebook will not allow any external application. Just like Google how they come up various dramas called " Penguin" & " Panada " to move clients to adwords, now facebook want to ban these kind of softwares to increase their advertising sales. Let's see what they are up to.

    Yeah currently FBLC or Social lead freaks or any other might be working, but this is about what FB might take actions in coming days. They are taking actions to to increase their advertising revenue just like google :)

    Yeah true, the UID scraping application are at stake, but am wondering why they have to do so ? If they think that is legal, and we still have the option to use UID's , it is really ridiculous. I only get to understand that they might remove the option of using UID's , as we are not allowed to use any application, so it is not easy to copy all UID's using FB graph search, and instead they will ask us to make custom audience by using user " interests " option. ( these are just my opinions though )

    And regarding suspending developers account, the developer clearly mentioned that he got an email from FB lawyers, so should directly from his main website using the contact email. And if you see third line from bottom he says that his personal FB account is suspended as all the respective apps are linked to that account. So , FB might not have suspended knowing that he is the owner.

    If his account actually got banned because of using those apps , then even other people FB accounts are at stake.

    Only time will tell us what's gonna happen, Hope not " FB BEAR or SNAKE or RABBIT " update suspending all accounts concerned to scraping UID's lol.. :)
