    @OP Yes there is a Social email harvester being sold right here in BHW marketplace which i hear is very good and does exactly what u want and a lot more(Haven t used it though)

    EDIT: But after reading above Post by crazy am not quite sure, its advertised as a email extractor which can target specific keywords and url. Contact some extractor sellers and ask them

    It's not really whether or not a tool exists, it's just that even if you were to extract every member of a fan page, which is a very difficult task in and of itself, you would only be able to extract their UID. With that UID, you might be able to find a few idiots that haven't secured their e-mail from public view, but it will be less than 2-3%.

    @ Crazy So what you are saying is that only accounts displaying their emails in public will be harvested even if extracted from a specific page and the low percentage makes it worthless?

    I'm not really understanding what you're saying, but yes unless the user has relaxed privacy settings (thus publishing their e-mail on their profile), you will not be able to scrape it.

    @Crazy Understood thanks for clarifying , I said that emails can be harvested from a specific fanpage but limited to only those fans who have displayed their emails in public profile , so ineffect reducing your targeted fanpage extract to only about 2-3% which is of no use since such a small percentage of successfully extracted emails makes it a waste of time.

    There's no viable solution for "harvesting" e-mails on FB. The only way you can do this is via viral applications and storing their e-mail upon acceptance of installation to their account.

    There is very simple solution :
    with scrapebox footprint:
    Code:
    site:www.facebook.com
    
    hundred niche keywords one below another

    and you will get a lot of facebook URLs (I got 17000)
    then extract emails with scrapebox , I got with this method 17K URLs and extracted 3500 my niche emails , simple and quick method
    It works also for myspace , for all .
    If you have better proxies you can try more accurate footprints like:
    Code:
    site:http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=  
    but I have bad public proxies , so Google and Bing were out of the game.
    only Yahoo gave me some results.

    Then if you want names , surnames , Ids , location , sex use
    Facebook Email Lookup which will give you this data 100% , because your emails were extracted from facebook profiles.

    chris,

    What you're finding will be cached garbage that people are posting around, it won't be what this guy is trying to do, which is harvest e-mails from active FB users (specifically, those that are members of a page or group he is tareting). In this respect, no there is no way to scrape for member e-mails. Can you scrape G for shit that people post on walls, pics, etc? Yes, but it will be low quality data.

    Also for scrape box you'd probably be better off using:

    site:facebook.com inurl:/profile.php?id=

    Code:
    site:facebook.com inurl:/profile.php?id= 
    This footprint I can't even try , I have bad proxies , I need maybe a private ones , but I don't want to buy them only for this purposes ,

    Using Operator footprints are bad for me , NO results , so I need to make the footprints with "quotes" and it works better . At least I have some results .
