    So I need to fetch data from pages with thousands of comments per post. Will Facepager be adequated for that?

    • David Sherlock Reply

      it has been a while since I’ve used it but I think it depends on how a many pages you want to mine. You might be best just using the facebook graph api. Facepager will help you get started understand the calls so it still might be worth taking a look.

          I’ve updated the post with some code I wrote in R that uses the a CSV file generated by facepager. If your doing anything interesting and want help/collaboration on a project let me know. hth.

        can you help me explain how to get login and mine data from facebook, like i want to collect data of people added with me on facebook…
        when i try to log in i dnt get log in page… looking forward to your reply..

        • David Sherlock Reply

          Im not sure what you mean you don’t get the log in page, When you press the button? Can you screen record what you have done so I can see if I can replicate the problem. If it is a software error you might want to contact Till Keyling, it might be best through the github repository for the app but he has been very good replying to me on Twitter at @tkeyling . The other author Jakob Jünger sometimes leaves comments on my blog, but I do not have hos contact details.

          I think to start it would be good to exactly identify the problem, is it when you press the log in to facebook button?

          • nizam

            Yes exactly, when i follow all the steps, and click on the Log in Facebook button i just get an empty window, and some errors are shown like ” SSL certificate error ignored: (Warning: Your connection might be insecure!)
            Network error (2): Connection closed” ,
            i have a screenshot but i dont know how to send you , as there is no option for attaching photos here.

    Thx for the source – I am getting an error on Error in order(-count) : object ‘count’ not found

    • David Sherlock Reply

      I’ll look in to it for you. Might not be until mid week tho

      • David Sherlock Reply

        ok, I cant see what I was trying to do there. I think I was trying to create a dataframe of all phrases and the number of times they were said. I’m trying to order it by the number of times they have been said.

        Delete this line:

        newdata <- mydata.df[order(-count),]

        and change the last line to:

        newdata<-mydata.df[order(mydata.df$count, decreasing=TRUE), ]

    Thx David! You video is so helpful! There’s one more question, can I extract my friends’ action on FB, like post, comments, like? Or I could only extract my friends’ action on my homepage? Trapped with this problem for weeks, hope to hear your suggestions.

    Thanks again!

    Hey David, thanks for your nice tutorial! I just start with Facepager and face some problem. I test with my own FB account following you instruction. But get nothing.
    If I write “me” in Add Nodes, then it returns “empty” in Object Type and “fetched (200)” in Query Status.
    If I past my user_id in Add Nodes, then it returns “data” in Object Type and “error (404)” in Query Status. If I click into error (404), it gives me following message:
    “error”: {
    “message”: “(#803) Some of the aliases you requested do not exist: me_x”,
    “code”: “803”,
    “type”: “OAuthException”

    I’m not sure what’s the problem and how to fix it. Grateful if you could help me with it.
    Many many thx!

    Hi, I’ve tried the software, and it worked just fine. But unfortunately I can only get 50 comments. Is there any way i can get ALL the comments and REPLY, LIKES and COMMENTS for the comments as well. PLUS how to get non-english comments automatically translated into English? Please, I need this for my project. Thanks

    I tried to use Facepager to extra post and comments from my Facebook group but I didn’t get it work.
    I only got it on my Facebook page. I cannot find any documentation on Facebook group. I could only extract the group members name.
    Many thanks in advance for any tips.

    Hi David,
    thank you for your great video. It was a great explanation! 😀 Does FP also have the possibility to download member names of a group and the name of the person who added them to the group?
    This would be a great tool to work with 🙂
    Maybe you know someone who can point me into the right direction
    Thanks a lot 🙂

    Hi! I was trying out Facepager to get data for my research and was getting an error(404) and when I check I have this “Cannot query users by their username”. I tried fetching data from “minecraft” and was able to get some data. Does this mean that we can only get data to publicly available FB pages? I tried it with my own FB account and got the same error.
