    Hi

    Is it possible to scrape emails from a group in Facebook? I am trying to scrape emails which people write in group thread conversations etc.

    Targeted email scraping from selected groups only.

    Give me a few example urls that have emails on them and I can answer that for you. The 2.0 email scraper supports https pages so thats not an issue, the only issue would be if the emails are in plain html or if they are in javascript or something (which the sockets can not read).

    You can do this with notepad++ , chrome + scraper plugin (or FF) & some basic knowledge of regex or xpath

    After you have installed scraper plugin , right click on name of the person and click scrape similar .
    example xpath for extracting names and urls of people who liked a post .
    then import data to notepad and append @facebook.com and delete facbook.com/ from each extracted urls .

    This was possible with the old group system on Facebook (which dated back to the very beginning of the service), and at one point I had written a really simple script that did it very painlessly. But they've since phased out that system in favor of the "New" Groups sometime around 2010. I've never figured out a way to do it since the transition to the new system.

    Not saying it isn't possible, but I (like the OP) would love to hear about it if anybody here knows
