I remember being a superstar because a lot of people liked my posts. Nothing is more rewarding! If you love me, I'll love you in return 😍
Sincerely — Your sweet prospect
Warm up your Facebook prospects before talking to them
If you want to warm up a prospect on Facebook, you'll have to like their posts. Start with a list of Facebook users and be ready to like their last posts. How many? It depends on how much love you want to spread!
What will you need? ⚙️
Session cookies c_user and xs: Your c_user and xs session cookies from Facebook.
Spreadsheet URL: The link of a Google Spreadsheet (or CSV) with Facebook profiles URLs in it, OR the direct link of a Facebook profile.
Number of likes to send per profile: The number of likes the API will send, starting by the most recent posts that are still unliked.

What you need to do.
1. Create an account on Phantombuster.com 💻
If you haven't already, create a FREE account on Phantombuster. Our service will browse the web for you. It’s a website automator which runs in the cloud. Once done we'll follow up.

3. Click on Configure me!
You'll now see the 3 configuration dots blinking. Click on them.
4. Facebook authentication 🔑
Because the script will manipulate Facebook for you, it needs to be logged on your Facebook account. For that you just need to copy paste two session cookies in the script argument:
Using Chrome, go to your Facebook homepage and open the inspector
→ Right click anywhere on the page and select “Inspect”
→ CMD+OPT+i on macOS
→ F12 or CTRL+MAJ+i on Windows
Locate the “Application” tab
Select “Cookies” > “http://www.facebook.com” on the left menu.
Locate the “c_user” cookie.
Copy what’s under “Value” (Double click on it then Ctrl+C) and paste it into your script Argument)
Below your session cookies you’ll find Spreadsheet URL.
Add in the Spreadsheet URL textbox the link of a Google spreadsheet with this same format (Share option must be OPEN).
Your spreadsheet should contain a list of Facebook profile URLs (one link per row).
You can specify the name of the column that contains the profile links. Simply enter the column name in the next text field.
You can also enter a single Facebook profile URL directly in the field.
⚙️️Repetition setup ⚙️
Now that your API is ready, you have to customize it to make it work repetitively:
To do so, simply hit the “Settings” button to define when your API is launched.
Then, select a frequency:
Now that this is set, click 💾 Save at the bottom of the page.
There you go, the scraping will be made for you without you doing anything!
Click on Launch & Enjoy!
It’s done! All that is left to do is to click on "launch" to try your script!
Please be aware that this API will manipulate your own account on your behalf.
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.
