Does anyone have a good template to mine public information from Facebook?
The API that I used to use is no longer available.
Good news! We just released an Alteryx Connector to mine data from Facebook. Here is the link :
Feel free to contact me for any queries.
This doesn't pull any of the information I need.
Also, I can't use a Macro that has to be paid for or is linked to an account that isn't one of our company-approved accounts to use.
This is the demo version. The full version can pull page description, about, likes, posts, posts' comments and posts' shares and likes too.
Let me know if you need any help.
Is it possible to modify the macro? I need to fetch many more fields from the page. I have attched the file which contains variable names to be fetch.
Do let me know how the workflow will look like.
yes, it can be run but will have to make modifications in macro to allow that
Thanks for creating and sharing this macro, it is very useful.
I noticed that page "likes" were not coming through. After a bit of research, I came across some documentation (https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/changelog/) which states that the page "likes" has been renamed "fan_count".
I edited the macro and replaced all references to "likes" with "fan_count", and that did the trick. I think there were only two or three nodes that actually referenced it.
I tried to use this macro, but I got an error message.
"(#803) Cannot query users by their username (knozawa)". I am not quite sure what I should input into "Facebook Page Name" box.
