    What is the best email scraper for FB that is compatible for Mac? The majority of the ones i have seen are built for windows computers.

    Just one thing : no software is able to scrape emails from Facebook users.
    The only thing that a software can do, it's scraping emails from pages and groups where email addresses are posted in clear.

    To do that, you can use Email Grabber (PC/Mac) :
    Code:
    http://www.emailgrabber.net/

    So would it be possible to collect all the emails of fb users who had joined a specific event or fan page?

    Yes, if you have the URL.
    If you have ScrapeBox, you can harvest URLs of Facebook pages/groups with this kind of footprint :
    Code:
    [COLOR="Yellow"]weight loss[/COLOR] "gmail.com" "yahoo.com" inurl:"pages" site:facebook.com
    Where weight loss will be your niche.
    It's just an example, I'm sure you can optimize that.

    When you have scraped tons of URLs, just load in Email Grabber and start extraction.

    This should work :D

    UPDATE : I just looked how Facebook pages works.
    Facebook doesn't uses the "@" in source code but the decimal translation "& #064 ;" (so Email Grabber will not works...).

    So, to extract emails you must use this regular expression :
    Code:
    [A-Z0-9._%+-]+(& #064 ;)[A-Z0-9.-]+\.[A-Z]{2,6}
    And then, use the classic search-and-replace to replace "& #064 ;" by "@".

    Example :
    Code:
    Before : contact& #064 ;domain.com
    After : contact@domain.com
    Hope it helps.

    Beny

    PS : Remove spaces in "& #064 ;".

    I appreciate you taking the time to find and get back to me, really good of you. However im a bit of a beginner at this stuff, is there anywhere you'd recommend me looking to learn how to do the extractions etc?

    To harvest URLs of Facebook pages/groups, you can use my free software :
    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo-tools/388679-christmas-gift-simple-google-scraper.html
    Use the footprint mentioned above (just replace or remove the yellow text), like that :
    [​IMG]

    Now you need to use a regular expression extractor like the one mentioned :
    Code:
    http://codecanyon.net/item/regex-extractor-extract-everything-simply-/1327433
    Open it and load harvested URLs.
    As regular expression put that (remove all spaces) :
    Code:
    [A-Z0-9._%+-]+(& #064 ;)[A-Z0-9.-]+\.[A-Z]{2,6}
    You should get that :
    [​IMG]

    Now export results and open the file with Notepad.
    Use search-and-replace like that :
    [​IMG]

    Voila, in few minutes you got 150 emails addresses related to your niche ("weight loss" in this example).
    It's easy, so just experiment and twist :)

    Can anyone recommend a good free expression extractor? I tried two, but couldnt get them to work properly. The post is quite good though.

    Hey guys I was thinking if people would be interested in an email extractor for FB friends? I don't think you can view emails of non-friends.

    Hi there,

    I am new to this forum - however I was wondering if someone could help me out. I am looking at a way to find a persons name based on an email. So if I can find a bunch of emails using the method wonderfully explained by "kokoloko75".. is there a way in which these email addresses can go through facebook and return the name? and if so, gender also?

    Thanks!

    What ? You got zero emails with my method ?
    Hmmm... You have failed somewhere and/or not read all I written :D

    This method works perfectly.

    Friend where can I find this software? Does it get every email on site posted in open?

    Or you have to give all links to check, all fanpages, etc?
