    Hello everyone,

    I found this great forum because I was looking for a good way to scrape emails for building a custom FB audience, and I found the tutorial by Sasha, and after reading it all I found out that the method isn't working anymore :(
    Is there any way to build a very targeted audience these days? My situation is that I'm targeting employees from specific companies and as example I have a company with 8000 employees but I can only find 2000 via the official FB audience tools. I can see that the company page has 8K likes so my plan was to find these people and target them directly but it doesn't seem possible.
    I also looked at the tools like Social Interest Freak and AudienceDrill for creating more specific audiences, but it's not clear if these tools offer any advantage to my specific situation and they're not able to find anymore people than what I can find in the FB audience builder right?
    any inout would be highly helpful :)

    Greetings my newbie fellow & welcome to BHW community!

    Let me summarize this strange creature called "Facebook Ads" in few words:
    FB making whatever they can to fight us and we fight back, so what I suggest is:
    1. Always stay updated with new methods of targeting
    2. FB Campaigns Experts ain't using all these crappy methods that being blocked over and over again - instead, try to target diffrent audiences by diffrent filters.. it's a fail & advance game :D
    3. It might be frustrating, but you may see progress and successful campaigns atleast I do.

    Long story shot:
    FB Ads is sophisticated.

    It seems like some people still have the impression that it's possible to create a custom audience with scraped UID's - Can anyone comment on this?

    Its very much more challenging than before, and if people abuse this method it'll get patched like the old one did.

    If anyone knows a method for targeting specific FB users we're ready to pay good money for it. We can't tell anyone the users or the product we're selling so we need to know the actual method.
