Facebook Cause Pages

Oct 22, 2014 at 9:14 PM
Hi All,

I've also got another quick question. I am assessing a Facebook user (Airport Watch) who has a Cause page. However when it comes to NodeXL the import options don't display a cause page. However when I select fan page the group appears (even though it's a cause). Why is this?

Thanks,

Hello Andy,

Facebook has different fan page "types". The one you mention is a cause page, but there are also community pages, public figures etc. which in reality are just fan pages (we can also say pages to generalize the term) and can be imported using the fanpage importer.

Hi Arber,

Oh right ok, I managed to import the cause page (Airport Watch) through the fan page option and it looks absolutely fine.

Thanks,

Andrew
