    How does one scrape fan pages or even just people's profiles now with the new facebook changes?

    I am more interested in fan pages...how does one do it? I thought there was a URL you were supposed to copy into Facebook Blaster's URL bar, but I can't seem to find the URL...

    Thanks

    When you are one the main page (wall) of a fan page, you have 6 thumbmail that display random fans of this page.

    You have a link just at the top of the 6 thumbmails: "see all"

    Right click => copy the link, past it into the URL bar of the explorer of friend blaster.

    Press enter

    Click on "gather IDs" on the "Gathering IDs" tab

    By the way: what are the changes on facebook you are talking about ?

    your welcome

    Well, the 'see all' link isn't there anymore.

    Any other ideas?

    The changes are that the 'see all' button has been removed. Or at least thats what I see.

    (assuming it's working)?

    i have friend blaster pro for adding friends..somewhere i red that you have to put this code after facebook(dot)com, add /social_graph.php?node_id=FAN-PAGE-ID&class=FanManager

    Just replace " FAN-PAGE-ID " with your fan page id number ...

    but i cannot find where i can see my fan page id..

    I think FB made some new changes, I have not tested yet. When I test I will post back with results.

    yes i had the same problems.


    xxxx://xxx.facebook.com/social_graph.php?node_id=xxxxxxxxx&class=FanManager&start=yyyy


    see the above page its got 50k fans on it i can only ever pull the same 8k of ids from it.

    now you see the start=yyyy well thats a 4 digt for the number of users per page it only goes two 9999

    if you try and set it two 5 digit it wont pull any ids.

    i dont think that you can pull any more IDS well more than 8k that is.

    if any one wants two tell me diffrent please feel free!

    i used ********** 2.0.20.0 FAB and friends adder elite. none of them works pulling more than 9 or 10 k

    The link might not be there, but the page definately hasn't gone.

    example:
    Code:
    http://www.facebook.com/social_graph.php?node_id=104024379633553&class=FanManager&start=20
    just replace id=xxxxxxxxxxxx with the id number of your fanpage.

    the fanpage id is present in the URL

    eg:
    Code:
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/fcuk/103127673060958?ref=ts
    in this case 103127673060958 is the fanpage id. or if its not present in the fanpage url, hover over the fanpage image (left hand side) copy the link address and it should have the id within that link.


    was puzzled with this certain prob... well basically this is a limit imposed by FB and there's currently no work around (atleast browser based)... even for me at max i can scrape 7k-8k per fanpage... which is sad cuz for people adding fans by niche.... it leaves a huge number of targetted people completely out of our marketing promotion... well its better than nothing i guess

    There is no workaround (as far as I know). You can only scrape up to ~10k IDs from a certain page.

    Is there a way to find the id's of people that have installed a facebook app? On the fanpages for apps there maybe half a million people that are monthly users. Is there any easy way such as scraping to get hold of their id's?
