    Hello im not sure where to put this on the forum hopefully this is a good section. I used to be able to search thousands of users on facebook ex."people who like coca cola" but recently I have experienced only very few people showing up no matter what I search and "----end of results----" is displayed at the bottom. Its like I hit some api limit or something . Is this a global issue with facebook right now? Can anyone test and let me know because i tested on 20 accounts already using my proxies.

    Thank you

    I do care about this, yeah I can't use graph search anymore. Usually I can scrape 1000 - 10000 id faceook but right now I just got 7 id. I dont know maybe FB have some update on their system.

    Wondering what you are doing with these users?

    The only real way to target scraped users now is if you have mass accounts to private message people. And then it goes to the others folder which means 90% of people won't see it and even if they do it's marked as spam..

    Or you can try adding people based on targeted user ID, but most people won't accept strangers unless in specific niches..

    Or you can mass tag people on only group posts, but this just looks spammy unless you do it right..

    Importing scraped user IDs into custom audiences got limited in like 2015..

    have same issue - only 7 results.. Dont know is it a facebook problem or what? if users will get only 7 results, graph search will be a joke without any sense of using it..

    I am targeting ppl based off "Job Title" can't do it anymore.

    All we can do now is be patient FB is not disclosing any information on it as far as I know. However i think its because of their recent lawsuits they are limiting data. It should be back up if not FB is turning into garbage real soon.

    i dont know why other internet marketing forums/blogs don't write about it, nobody care about that? Maybe there is a new algorithm in facebook which limited graph search for account where it is used so much ?

    Please I want to know something, after the graph search, how do you communicate, I mean do you send messages to the scraped ids? how do you relate with the id's

    Are you guys splitting your scraping over many accts/IPs? Most likely your accts are getting flagged/restricted grid access due to excessive scrapes, it's been working fine over here so it's not total grid search restriction like some of you are suggesting. @swagwaffle @ancientaliens
