    Is there any way, in any application or by any code to only gather ID's of, for instance, people from LA or Brasil, or only female... while you're scraping, ID's from a wall or friends from a certain member.

    I haven't found that option anywhere while gathering.


    Thanks in advance! :)

    ********** may do what you're asking.

    I suggest that you find pages that are closely related to your niche because
    1) They're your target market (LOL)
    2) These people are more prone to interaction (like becoming a fan, etc)

    you can only filter users as per location in facebook, you can not filter as per age or sex.

    Obviously.. And of course that is what I'm doing already. Can ********** filter group members, or ID's of people that posted on a wall, in that way?
    I didn't have a chance to test it since there is no demo or trial available atm.

    You don't say...:eek:

    But now seriously, let's say one has an Iphone offer - he scrapes ID's from pages related to Iphone and mobile phones in general.

    BUT IF THAT OFFER WORKS ONLY FOR ONE CERTAIN COUNTRY 90 % of those ID's are USELESS! Right?! Is there a way to filter those ID's while scraping or after scraping to be left with only those you really need?

    How DO I filter them by location??

    Thank you in advance! =)

    I'm interested in this too; search via fanpage/group/keyword & then by location...

    thanks

    AAFA gathers all details about accounts that it interacts with:

    Age
    Sex
    Current Location
    Birthplace
    Language
    How many fan pages they have joined
    Marital Status
    Activities
    Interests
    High School
    College
    Employement

    Using this info we can Laser target leads - ie, for a recent golfing vacation offer we used:

    Males 27-45 - Single - USA/AU/CAN/UK || Make & Interested in Golf

    This reduces the number of non-responses, and decreses the number of accounts you will lose due to spamming people who wont be interested in your offer.

    Hi aReJay,

    could you give me an idea how to do this? I'm a bit lost!

    eg if I am looking to find targeted friends with...

    People search : Keyword(s) and Location (country or city!)
    or
    Group/Fanpage/Friends of a person and Location

    Ideally I'm looking to target people according to a particular music type in different locations.

    Many Thanks

    There are applications that already do this for you, so you don't have to worry about getting so low at the system to get things done.

    hey aReJaY, other than your own software is there any other that can do the trick?

    I know you might not want to give credit to your competition but I was just asking anyway.

    You can also filter by sex, it's just that not all FB users allow non-friends to see this info but a LOT still do.

    Dont know if any other applications allow you to filter by that much detail (I doubt it) and the most recent FB updates will have broken any software older than the last 7-10 days.
