Collect information from any Facebook group

Facebook Ads have always proved better than the other social networks because of the granular level on which you can segment your audiences.

But what if you want to create lists of people more manually in order to do actions in (or outside) Facebook?

That's where this Facebook scraper comes in handy: Facebook Group Extractor will scrape as many people as it can and serve them to you in a spreadsheet or a json file.

2. Add this Facebook automation to your account.

3. Click on Configure me!

You'll now see the 3 configuration dots blinking. Click on them.

4. Easy & safe authentication

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 groups you want to scrape people from.

Create a spreadsheet on Google Spreadsheet.

Fill it with Facebook groups 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: Facebook only displays a random number of users in a group. You might get a few hundreds... or a few thousands, whatever the size of the group.

Since Phantombuster's servers are located on the west coast of the USA, Facebook might to 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 APIs to their max potential, we recommend using a proxy close to you.
