I'm trying to help a friend with a project. We need all posts from a particular Facebook group extracted (any format, JSON, CSV, whatever). We plan on analyzing the content.
I thought this would be a simple task - set up a Facebook app, use the Graph API, query for the posts, and catalogue them. This is when I learned that you needed to submit a video for App Review with Facebook in order to use their API for groups.
Is there any other way to pull this data out Facebook? It's all public data.
Do I need to resort to web scraping? Is there another API? Can I formally request this information from Facebook in some way?
