    Is there a way to scrape FB profile information and post it to a wordpress site? How about existing databases of such things? I would never pay for spokeo but I am guessing that is all it is right? A collection of databases?

    What do you mean by FB profile information? You mean like name, birthday, city? That sort of thing.

    I could probably do the facebook scraping but unfortunately I don't have any experience with WP.

    I think there are ways to import .csv format data into wordpress to make posts. Could you scrape specific geographic area from facebook?

    Why would you like to post FB profiles to a blog?
    OT: I'm sure it can be done with the right tool and footprint but it have become alot harder now since FB requires you to be logged in in order to see all info and would then limit you account if you abuse it. I guess.

    If I told you why I wanted to do it , My method would be done before I knew if I could do it or not but trust me it is a good idea.
