    Hey guys i need some help, i got a big list of facebook profiles URLs and i would like to convert them to IDs in bulk. Got any ideas?

    I found a website called findmyfacebookid but it can only convert them one by one.

    Hope something can be done!

    Build an iMacro bot to search the Facebook API for users. Simply have the bot pull the URL's from a notepad list, make a "GET" request to the Facebook API URL and you'll get the following:

    {
    "id": "394849575",
    "name": "Brian Johnson",
    "first_name": "Brian",
    "last_name": "Johnson",
    "link": "facebook.com/Brian",
    "username": "Brian",
    "gender": "male",
    "locale": "en_US",
    "updated_time": "",
    "type": "user"
    }

    Your "Get ID" is what you're looking for, have the ID extracted to a list and repeat the process.
