I want to obtain the posts of the recent two days, there should be dozens of them, but only 8 are returned. Please help to take a look at what the reason is, thanks

@studious_honeylocust Thank you for the reply; May I ask if you know which actor can collect Facebook posts more accurately and comprehensively?

Hi! Thanks a lot for feedback! I re-run https://www.facebook.com/GUfoods with input copy https://console.apify.com/view/runs/P7ZkgCBlSFrwYK0r7 and check manually https://api.apify.com/v2/datasets/yQxYr1gCS5zR5RzC4/items?clean=true&fields=time,text,topLevelUrl&format=json with page in incognito browser. Posts scraped 1-1, so for this case actor works as expected (do mind that checkup must be done in incognito browser without Facebook login)

For https://www.facebook.com/ChinaGlobalTVNetwork issue confirmed but not pinned down: https://console.apify.com/view/runs/7XiOBI8QckI83yVQP At the moment of writing initial posts till https://www.facebook.com/100044504436603/posts/1074961673997304 "#Panda fanatics in #SouthKorea" are accurate, then visible output from page differ from scraped posts: next post in browser "U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen" while next scraped post https://www.facebook.com/100044504436603/posts/1074709310689207 "Chinese President #XiJinping" and mismatches continued

Another run with proxy country set in json input revealed that https://www.facebook.com/ChinaGlobalTVNetwork show different set of posts per country (I testing manually from TH IP): https://console.apify.com/view/runs/ekbdO5sGa8L0XMUbe is almost accurate, still some posts missed like between "Worrying combination of #Sahara" and "Why would you offer the 鈥榞ift鈥 of 20,000 elephants?" in dataset https://api.apify.com/v2/datasets/9yarAuYmIXWcJe12v/items?clean=true&fields=time,text,topLevelUrl&format=json there is "View over Israel-Gaza border as seen from Israel" on page

Hi! Please try again, posts are the same now regardless of proxy IP, you can verify accuracy from incognito browser.

I麓m going to close the issue now, but if there would be anything else we could help with, please let us know.
