Facebook Restrictions

Oct 20, 2014 at 8:50 PM

I'm trying to extract Facebook Fan Pages and Groups for three groups. I have tried to download them into NodeXL but it doesn't appear to download the whole network (i.e from when they first started using Facebook to a certain cut off date).

Does anyone know why this is? Are there restrictions which exist on how much data you can download from Facebook?

I have just downloaded the updated importer but the problem remains.

Hello Andrew,

do you get an error while downloading data? Facebook doesn't limit the amount of data you can get (except the data that users don't want to share). Can you specify the fan page you want to analyze and the options you selected?

Hi Arber,

I don't get an error message when downloading the data but I was just wondering if Facebook possesses limitations on the amount of extractable data just like Twitter does?
