    Sorry to make my very first thread be a question asking for help, rather than some sort of contribution but here goes:

    A friend of mine just had her son die unexpectedly a few days ago. I was hoping to create a mosaic photo of him using profile photos of all the people he was friends with and fb is a pretty good starting point to do so since he has about 1200 unique users as friends there.

    Unfortunately I have literally no experience with programming such a thing on facebook and a look into the facebook forum left me a little overwhelmed trying to find such a thing, since I don't know the terminology very well and can't seem to come up with some good search terms to find just what I'm looking for.

    The question:

    Is there an easy way to scrape the profile photos of all of his friends on facebook? I'm friends with his mother, but not friends with him, but his profile is public and I can see his entire friends list.

    Sorry again for a somber request as a first post, but it's something I'd really like to do for her.

    John
