    hi.

    Quick question.

    I came up with a bot that will scrape all the images from any facebook page.

    however, i am wondering if I am ambitious and try to scrape 1000+ images all at once from a page, (of course with a bit of random delays between each image), would my IP get banned?

    Does anyone have any experience with this that can shed some light?

    Thanks,
    CO

    I thought so but wanted to check. I am using it through a private VPN account. So don't want to mess up that IP.

    Confusing title. You did get banned or you're just asking about it? I think you'll be fine, I highly doubt Facebook even monitors for image downloads.
