    Hey Team,

    Creating custom audience files is great!
    What tools do you use to gather a good list of UIDs?

    Personally I've tried FB Lead Chef and was able to gather a good list, but it is somehow limited.

    Did someonetrie Social Lead Fox or Social Lead Freak?
    What gives you best results?

    I am using Social Network Data Mining tool - sndm.sk
    It is an online tool and is pretty useful for me.

    SLF is ok. Ive tried it, it will pull iuds from most common posts and likes from fan pages. So essentially pretty much highly targeted fresh leads. The down side is that it can take forever especially to build a large list. Getting iuds from groups is much faster.

    they have graph search scraper now too. I like SLF but not the best out there imo

    So who, in your opinion, is a better tool? I see that there's social arsenal, but at $997 it's pretty steep. I heard of an upcoming software called FBBam from the same guys - but it if it's just a one-off tool that only scrapes one type of page/post/etc. and doesn't do it all, then I have a feeling they're going to sell it at something stupid like $297.

    I want to try Social Lead Freak, but again, if it's not the best at it's price point - then who's the comparison because I have a graph scraper which sucks ass imho. You can't get enough UIDs with just graph scraping compared to if you could scrape hundreds of thousands UIDs with another tool..say when the Seahawks beat the Broncos in an upset :)

    I used Social Lead Freak, Social Lead Fox, FBLeadJacker as well as FBLeadChef and recently bought FBLeadStorm. FBLeadStorm is handsdown my favorite tool for extracting user profiles. Why? Because it works. FBLeadJacker had about 3 updates the last 48h just because there was a problem with the scrolling...

    How about FB Lead Targeter? Have anyone tried it? Sorry, i'm not qualified to post any links in BHW posts yet. Just google "fb lead targeter" and you'll see a WSO link. That's the one I'm talking about...

    For those who've tried it, kindly post your feedbacks here. :)

    Never heard of that before TimeFrost.

    I was able to get an early copy of FBLeadStorm v3 and I can say, boooom, scraping has become way more interesting. They added the function to scrape x last posts of a profile or page. Before you export your UIDS, you can set a filter of the most engaged people. This means you can read 100k UIDS but only export the most engaged, aka people who have left a comment 3 times. This will give you a list of highly interested people within your niche.

    Another cool feature is basically the same function as above, but for hashtag pages. Yes, hashtags...do you even imagine the power of getting people who use hashtags? You can ride all kinds of trends...

    So far I got excellent results with this tool and the related campaigns I am running. So again, I highly recommend that scraper to anyone who is serious about facebook marketing.

    ps. I am not getting paid to write this but since this thread is about scrapers I thought I will post my experience with FBLeadStorm.

    Is this really against Facebook's TOS? It seems odd they would let you upload a file of UIDs if it was.

    *Also, I'm pretty happy with FBLead Chef. Though, it has trouble reaching FB's API sometimes.
