    Any help in this area would be MUCH appreciated. I've been using scrapebox to get emails from Facebook. But just recently (within the last 2-3 days) Facebook converted all pages to secure (https) and now Scrapebox can no longer read these pages. So when I upload all my harvested URLs into the email grapper, Scrapebox can no longer read those pages so I get an error for every single URL. I contacted Scapebox about this and they informed me that it was because Facebook switched their URLs from http to https. They also said no fix is in the foreseeable future.

    So my question is, does anyone know of any other email scrapers that can read secure pages (https)? If anyone could help I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

    Yes, it's true. Only way to bypass it is to create your own bot-scrapper who logins into FB account and parses all the emails from the pages.

    The email scraper is updated for the next version, it works with Facebook, Twitter and any https urls. It also works with redirects such as http urls redirecting to https etc.

    You can't see personal email from Facebook now. Because they changed it. By the way you can use this.

    It's getting more difficult day by day, I'm sure someone has a custom tool already developed for this though.
