Can I scrape private Facebook groups?

No, the Facebook Group Scraper is designed exclusively for public groups. It cannot access or extract data from private groups due to privacy restrictions and Facebook's terms of service.

How do I avoid being blocked by Facebook?

To minimize the risk of being blocked by Facebook, ensure you adhere to the platform's scraping guidelines, use the tool responsibly, and consider implementing delays between requests. It's also beneficial to use the proxy options provided to mimic natural browsing patterns.

What formats can I download the scraped data in?

The Facebook Group Scraper supports multiple data formats for download, including JSON, XML, CSV, Excel, and HTML. This flexibility allows you to choose the format that best suits your analysis tools and preferences.

Is there a limit on the number of posts I can scrape from a group?
