    Hello,
    i need some help to write a scraper for facebook pages which use timeline.
    The regular pages are easy to scrape, but this new timeline is a f*cking mess.
    FQL and graph API are not options - they are buggy and incosistent enough, but they also have 600 calls per 600 seconds for each access token, which is not enough. My problem is how to properly navigate the timeline. I need some guidelines, code is not necessary, though it will be helpful.
    I tried to spoof my user-agent as an mobile device(iPhone) to simplify the timeline mess, it was working great, but it doesnt' return more than 100 posts.
    Any suggestions will be very appreciated.


    Thank you very much.
