Is there a difference between scraping a Facebook Profile and Facebook Page?

Yes, there is. Facebook Pages are created for businesses, companies, non-profits, and other social causes. Those are the Facebook accounts that strive to provide "public-first" content and are often managed by a group of people. An easy way to distinguish between a Facebook profile and a Facebook page is that pages usually have a category of content and activity they would like to be associated with (news, software, hospitality, etc.) Facebook Pages that are particularly popular often include a blue verification badge. This scraper scrapes basic information from Facebook Pages only.
