Cost of usage

Troubleshooting

Page must be publicly available without login, means you should see page in incognito browser. If page is not available actor will end up woth no results. If you not getting expected amount of posts try to increase "Max retries" in input, if you still unable to get expected posts with 20-30 retries under "Automatic proxy", try to switch proxy groups manually under "Selected proxies" in "Proxy settings" and see which one works (in other words Apify unable to automatically find proxy which works good enough, need to try manually). If none of the above helps please report an issue.

Input

Provide list of pages and amount of scrolls to do on each page.

{
  "pageNames": [ "nintendo" ],
  "scrollsAmount": 3
}

Output

Counters over 1.000 rounded to hundreds, i.e. 1.812 likes will be rounded to 1.800 likes.

Integrations and Facebook Page Posts Scraper

Last but not least, Facebook Page Posts Scraper can be connected with almost any cloud service or web app thanks to integrations on the Apify platform. You can integrate with Make, Zapier, Slack, Airbyte, GitHub, Google Sheets, Google Drive, and more. Or you can use webhooks to carry out an action whenever an event occurs, e.g. get a notification whenever Instagram API Scraper successfully finishes a run.

Using Facebook Page Posts Scraper with the Apify API

The Apify API gives you programmatic access to the Apify platform. The API is organized around RESTful HTTP endpoints that enable you to manage, schedule, and run Apify actors. The API also lets you access any datasets, monitor actor performance, fetch results, create and update versions, and more.

To access the API using Node.js, use the apify-client NPM package. To access the API using Python, use the apify-client PyPI package.

Check out the Apify API reference docs for full details or click on the API tab for code examples.
