This social handle scraper is designed to work well with the Advanced Google Maps Scraper as it can get websites from the output of that scraper, but it will also work with any other Actor that outputs a website or URL column in its dataset.

Output format

  • πŸ‘‹ Name
    • Taken from the title of the page
  • πŸͺͺ ID
    • This will be the ID passed in, or a hash of the URL if no ID was supplied
  • πŸ“‡ Social Handles
    • The username or handle for each social network
    • NOTE:
      • the output tab will only show the most popular networks
      • the full list is in the JSON / CSV or API output

🏭 Example Output

Here's an example of social network usernames for A24 Films, from their website:

1[
2  {
3    "title": "A24",
4    "instagram": "a24",
5    "facebook": "a24",
6    "twitter": "a24",
7    "youtube": "a24films"
8  }
9]

πŸ“ Input format

You can supply a URL or a place ID to scrape the details for that place.

NOTE: if you supply both a URL and a place ID for a single place, it may be scraped twice and both results will appear in the dataset. You should try to supply either a URL or a place ID for each place, but not both for the same place.

Speed is dependent on the memory available to your Actor and the settings you're using.

To help you calculate, each page you scrape from will produce a summary like the example below (which was run on an Actor with 4,096MB memory):
