4. Easy & safe authentication

🤓 Pro tip: Your authentication cookies are only necessary if you also want to scrape the Facebook profile URLs of the comments.

This automation will connect to the website on your behalf. The safest and most efficient way for Phantombuster to authenticate as yourself is by using your session cookies.

To make that process as easy as possible you can use Phantombuster's browser extension. It's a 2-click installation.

If you're operating from another browser and/or want to do it manually, here is how to do it.

5. Specify which pages' reviews you want to scrape.

Create a spreadsheet on Google Spreadsheet.

Fill it with Facebook pages URLs. One event URL per row, all in column A.

Make this spreadsheet public so Phantombuster can access it.

Paste the spreadsheet's URL to Phantombuster.

Start your automation!

You're all set. Just click "launch" to get your automation started!

Set this Facebook automation on repeat

Once your automation's configuration is ready, you can schedule repetitive launches. This will allow you to avoid rate limits, scrape more data and get your automated workflows to spread over days, weeks, even months.

To do so, go to your dashboard and look for your automation's “Settings” button.

Then, select a frequency:

And Save those new settings at the bottom of the page.

Recommendations

👮 Facebook limits: Since Phantombuster's servers are located all around the world, Facebook might consider those login attempts as 'unusual activities'. It's likely that they'll then temporarily lock your account and ask you to confirm your login.

In order to use the Facebook automations to their max potential, we recommend using a proxy close to you.
