    Hi,

    I have searched around, however I have not come across a free simple tool that allows me to do this.

    I want to scrape peoples IDs who are attending specific events on facebook. I want to use this to do targeted ads.

    Does anyone have a reliable working program that allows me to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Go to Facebook Graph an click on FQL query. Then Type in the following:

    SELECT uid,first_name,last_name,sex FROM user WHERE uid IN (SELECT uid FROM event_member where eid = 'XXX' AND rsvp_status == 'attending')

    For just getting the uid:
    SELECT uid FROM user WHERE uid IN (SELECT uid FROM event_member where eid = 'XXX' AND rsvp_status == 'attending')

    :)

    Thanks a lot, that's great. Just wondering, is there anyway to copy & paste or export the data with the writing at the start or do I have to delete that myself. Otherwise it doesn't let me import it into custom audiences in the power editor.

    There was but from what I heard it can only scrape xxxx users. It won't scrape anything more than that. :(
