Facebook Spigot not working!

Sep 21, 2011 at 8:31 PM



I have the latest version of NodeXL (.1.177). I downloaded and included the FacebookAPI.DLL and FacebookImporter.DLL files in to my plugins folder. Yet when I start nodeXL, I donot see the option of importing from Facebook enabled in the Data import section. (I did close and restart).


Any clues on what might be wrong? I am using WIN 7 + Office 2010.

Two questions:

1. Do you see a group of items in your NodeXL, Data, Import menu that mention Flickr, Twitter and YouTube?  The Facebook item is supposed to be in the same group.

2. Did you copy the Facebook files into one of the following existing folders?  (Your particular computer will have only one of these folders.  Do not create a PlugIns folder; it's already there.)

    * C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Research\Microsoft NodeXLExcel Template\PlugIns
