    What is the best way to extract competitors customer base for facebook sponsored ads?

    I previously used UID's with Facebook Power Editor but noticed that has been stopped now.

    Good question!

    Well, I have tried using PVA accounts to add the targeted UIDs (from competitors' page active users; likers and commenters) as friends then add the friend lists to my groups and invite them to my page.
    This can be time-consuming but most of the methods can be automated.

    Wow...I would never thought of that. But can't you just target your competitors page fans?

    You should be able if you plan on using Facebook ads.



    1. Create or purschasepVA accounts (Fake accounts you use to do marketing)

    2. Install "AnyAudience" Chrome extension. It extracts UID or @facebook.com emails.

    3. Target groups and pages you believe relate to your niche. Use the chrome extension to extract the commenters, sharers and likers of competitors page posts.

    4. Use a tool/script to automatically add the commenters, likers and sharers to your PVA accounts as friends (use delay intervals so that the accounts don't get suspended or banned from certain actions). There are many tools for this, Im currently using Facebook Poster & Scheduler from ntweb.org

    5. When the accounts reach 5000 friends list each, gradually (use delay intervals as well), add them to your groups and invite them to your pages. There are also Chrome extensions for this. Alternately, Facebook Poster & Scheduler has the features as well.

    6. Run the process all over again with new PVA accounts to gain more group members and page likes.

    MORE TIPS:
    Use the previous PVA accounts to share content from your pages (links, pictures, videos) and profile wall to get more reach.
    Join related groups to your niche with the PVA accs and share content from your main page to the groups.

    It seems that anyaudience doesn't work anymore, or it's not available on chrome store. Could you share a link to download it please? Is there any other way maybe. Sorry for bothering, but you see - the way you just proposed with that chrome plugin, I've never heard of it before. Is there some kind of list of those useful tools that could help me or something similar. Some good methods from wich I can learn. If you don't feel like answering it's ok and thank you upfront :)

    I just see what you talking about; It's no longer available for purchase from the author's site. It seems like they are updating it.
    Alternately, you can search google for a UID scraper, or use the tool I mentioned previously.

    In certain niches you can just add 100-200 of those people manually as friends, then you will get friend requests automatically.

    Thanks for the reply. I purchased a copy of AnyAudience but didn't see any way to extract commenters from a group. Just members. At anyrate, I tried it against my competitor's group which is over 200k but FB stopped loading new members after about 7k. Is there a way to get the rest? Or am I only able to only get this small sample size? Thanks!

    Glad I could help.

    Regarding your questions about getting users from the comment section; try to run the extension on the group page or the post permalink on the group. You may need to click view more comment to access all the comments' users.

    Also, there seems to be a limit to how much group member show on the list. It usually stops at 7K for me too.
