    Does anyone know if there is a way to gather the e-mail addresses of users from specific facebook groups? I know I can gather their user IDs with a program but is it possible to gather their email addresses?

    No the privacy features on facebook won't allow you to see their profiles if you are not their friend. So I don't think this is realistic

    And the email addresses that are displayed on profiles are images not plain text which is a bit of a downer.

    If you were already a friend of theirs you could probably store the images and use OCR to convert them into text. Last time I was on facebook, which was some time ago, they were pretty much regular text.

    you can always pretending that you are a legit person. Invite friends to them. I do that for my facebook, and so far the rejection rate is very small, less than 10% I think.

    After you get the email address (yes, you MUST write it manually), you can start doing your marketing.

    I just hired someone from Get a Freelancer to do this. Paid $100 for 1,000 email addresses of group moderators. Not bad.
