Hey, this scraper is designed to scrape FB pages (e.g. https://www.facebook.com/humansofnewyork) - so as such it is failing due to incorrect input. For scraping groups - I'd invite you to use our FB Groups Scraper (https://apify.com/apify/facebook-groups-scraper). However, please bear in mind that this scraper can only extract data from public groups (not private ones), also there is no way you can scrape FB profiles (these are also private). Hope this answers your questions.
