    As Facebook makes changes we have to make changes to our programs and script as well side by side that is why it has stoped working waiting for new software to come out

    I just realised that Facebook has now limited scraping to the newest 500 fans only, and the list is only accessible to admins of the page.

    agree with moneyrocks,

    facebook made changes frequently,so you will have to get your script up-to-date in order to scrape the lists

    I recently ran into that problem when trying to scrape id's with a custom script :(
    You now have to change it to scrape via a search term, or from like app reviews.
    Anyone have any better ways to scrape ids?

    Use the graph api for such scraping stuff, pm me if you need help. I have coded similar scrapers and use them for all my projects. I dont mind sharing them if you need :)
