Extract data from one or multiple public Facebook groups. Get group and post URLs, post text, comments, timestamp, likes and comments count, and basic commentator info. Download the data in JSON, CSV, and Excel and use it in apps, spreadsheets, and reports.

The code examples below show how to run the Actor and get its results. To run the code, you need to have an Apify account. Replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> in the code with your API token, which you can find under Settings > Integrations in Apify Console. Learn more
