Facebook data mining

Hi guys,

I have a question. I’ll be working in near future on a project where I have to mine data from Facebook. The exact data is: date of the post, number of comments and number or reactions under it. All from a single company and for every single post for a 3 past period.

Now my question - how to do it or which tools should I use? I’m completly blind in this area and I’m just starting with data mining, so I’d love to use some help.

Many thanks!

Hi — this is largely not possible for Facebook. Twitter and Reddit are more commonly used and have much more open APIs. If interested here’s some code I share for twitter mining https://colab.research.google.com/drive/1MdgThbP6j9HUOMDBcqTZIsDTG8yzP-de. Other examples on my website http://robertthorstad.com/


Thank you, you just saved my bechelor’s thesis! I’ll most likely change the topic from Facebook to Twitter, no big deal :slight_smile:
