Missing attributes in FB pages scraper

Closed

Hi, We've scraped "AFK ARENA" page and got no followers at all in the results (RUN ID WLOKDF6Mg0JEeh7LO). But when scrapping other pages we do see followers count (RUN ID 9JtCgJkxcK8znzrdP or upIy9ptH4X6s5KMwO). Please compare the 2 results and you'll see that there are more missing fields , not only the Followers count. Why? Is there a problem with the scraper?

Hi! Thanks for feedback, internally there is several formats for FB pages and by admin or system action format might be upgraded and lead to different output. Will check why https://www.facebook.com/afkarena no longer getting valid counter and let you know later today.

Floating issue, solved by adding checkup to ensure that counters context exists. Fixed likes and ratingCount counters for values over 1 million

As for the rest of details - actor getting values from page root and from two sections, about_profile_transparency and about_details so data vary because differences in internal format and level of details provided by page admin. As far as tested we getting all possible details, if there is something seen in browser but missed in scraper output please kindly let us know.
