    Hi , does anybody knows some program which is able to get FACEBOOK (names , surnames , cities , sex ) from ID's ?

    Program should work like Facebook Lookup , but FLookup extracts from email addresses , I don't know their emails , I know their Id's , which I have previously extracted from Facebook Blaster .

    Excellent , thanks a lot, nice to know it , it is not so important for me at this moment , I am asking this in advance , but for sure I will need it , I have many my niche targetted friends on my main account and those friends has another friends and all of them I am constantly extracting with Facebook Blaster , I have many ID's now and I don't know who is who , there are many people who are not interested about me and my niche, so I want them filter out (by country , by name , if possible or best option by foto ) . It is nice to know it that you should create some program, because in very close future I will need it for sure and this will save me a lot of time and also help me to get many friends to another accounts or to my fan pages , so I can choose them (not spam)

    Facebook Lookup
    with fotos , names , surnames , city , country , possibly email and extracted from ID's should be ideal solution for me

    Indeed it seems quite useful. It shouldn't be terribly hard to make, although some individuals may not list where they live or even limit the data to City or Country only, but it is definitely a good tool to have.

    Just for reference are you looking to have it dumped to a delimited text file or CSV or MySQL or something else?

    I would probably do it by setting up an fb-app that gets all the possible info without authenticating the user - would be easier to code than a scraper of some kind :)

    Well every FB app can get basic user info based on the ID afaik - even without the authentication of the app. E.g. you auth the app on your account and loop through some queries that gather info based on the IDs in your list.

    CSV , Excel would be best , but even better to have some GUI where those people should be catalogized with their fotos , like this I should sort them visualy - easily , delete them or add them or best to sort them into groups (family , SEO outsourcers , web developers , my niche related people , now I have big mess in them , I have all of them together . Application for this should be really awesome for many people.
    btw. country and city provides a lot of people in their profiles. (would be nice to have them sorted by country too.)

    Simply use the link:

    Code:
    (secure):// graph DOT facebook DOT com/$id
    For those who don't know what (secure) is then it's HTTPS

    And then use basic PHP or Javascript to load the $id variable and then to extract the data.

    From what I can see, you will be able to do the extraction with that tool but not to load each new ID graph..

    Ohh my got , it really works !!

    When I insert in browser :

    Code:
    https://graph.facebook.com/9463406553 
    I get this:

    Code:
    {
       "id": "9463406553",
       "name": "Joe Doe",
       "first_name": "Joe",
       "last_name": "Doe",
       "link": "http://www.facebook.com/people/Joe-Doe/9463406553",
       "gender": "male",
       "locale": "en_EN"
    }
    It is incredible -:) very simple , without login to facebook.
    9463406553 - the number I have invented - don't try it - doesn't exists
    how to do it in bulk ? for example in excel ,
    I can use notepad++ and can insert
    https://graph.facebook.com/
    in front of all ID's I have , so I will have all Id's in format above , but how can convert it in excel for example to get from this other info?

    It must be very simple for someone to create tool which extracts those info !!

    With any text editor I can make https URLs from ID's I know and those URLs I can extract with any web data extractor . Easy Web Extractor can do it , he needs only URLs and mark fields which needs to be extracted so I can do it , but it must easy for any programmer to create lightweight tool only for this

    data extractor above should do it the same , there's a field where you can upload txt file with list of URLs and it will grab the info from every URL
    the program above wants only somebody create javascript code to enter in the field which is there for that purposes.

    For everybody interested , thanks CHRONIC getting
    Facebook ids , names , surnames , link , locale from ID numbers
    is nothing impossible and it is working perfectly now:


    In UEStudio editor I have added this :

    http://graph.facebook.com/


    in first column for huge list of URLs in front of every facebook user's ID number which I 've extracted from Facebook Friend Adder before :

    After adding the string to first column I got huge list of URLs with Facebook peoples ID's:

    Code:
    http://graph.facebook.com/1228149382/
    http://graph.facebook.com/100000726187253/
    http://graph.facebook.com/1776392339/
    http://graph.facebook.com/100001822881649/
    http://graph.facebook.com/100001206065754/
    http://graph.facebook.com/100001524414638/
    http://graph.facebook.com/100001315258367/
    http://graph.facebook.com/100000677839868/
    and all Urls I have inserted in Visual Web Spider and let him extract all URLs for <body> , so he extracted from every url <body>:
    list of id's , names , surnames , gender , locale and URL of everyone.

    Code:
    {"id": "9463406553","name": "Joe Doe","first_name": "Joe","last_name": "Doe","link": "http://www.facebook.com/people/Joe-Doe/9463406553","gender": "male","locale": "en_EN"}
    {"id": "9463406553","name": "Joe Doe","first_name": "Joe","last_name": "Doe","link": "http://www.facebook.com/people/Joe-Doe/9463406553","gender": "male","locale": "en_EN"}
    {"id": "9463406553","name": "Joe Doe","first_name": "Joe","last_name": "Doe","link": "http://www.facebook.com/people/Joe-Doe/9463406553","gender": "male","locale": "en_EN"}
    {"id": "9463406553","name": "Joe Doe","first_name": "Joe","last_name": "Doe","link": "http://www.facebook.com/people/Joe-Doe/9463406553","gender": "male","locale": "en_EN"}
    {"id": "9463406553","name": "Joe Doe","first_name": "Joe","last_name": "Doe","link": "http://www.facebook.com/people/Joe-Doe/9463406553","gender": "male","locale": "en_EN"}
    {"id": "9463406553","name": "Joe Doe","first_name": "Joe","last_name": "Doe","link": "http://www.facebook.com/people/Joe-Doe/9463406553","gender": "male","locale": "en_EN"}
    Now it will be easy to convert this to CSV format and to manage all Facebook Friends in excel


    Thanks a lot Chronic !! , really appreciate your advice , it works perfectly now(one change I had to do instead https:// I had to put http:// , otherwise it wouldn't work.)


    Last thing I want to try to find some system , how to extract Foto from every account .

    Yeah, I used this method for sorting pages by their fan count, but it's very limited. I don't recall the lookup limiit but I know I was required to pause for 5+ minutes before they would lift the limit and allow me to resume lookups. It doesn't provide location from what I've seen though, just basic public information.

    Here's the page sorter for anyone that cares, just gotta load the URLs of the pages. It's pretty much beta software but it gets the job done.

    Hi, these are some basic public information. you can also get profile picture from
    Code:
    http://graph.facebook.com/ID/picture/
    Is there any way to get other info without access key?

    incredible!! -:) it works !! -:) I can even get the photo from their profiles !! so the task is completed , there are many guys here on BHW who wants to create something for free or for small fee , why don't you think about this little facebook lookup where people should have database of their friends or fans on their desktop ? they can sort them , they can delete them from there , they should post to the wall , they should use it from a desktop or let it only work like a small friends database lookup
