Experiencing issues when trying to extract Facebook group data

Jun 19, 2015 at 4:26 PM

I am currently trying to use NodeXL in order to extract the data from a Facebook group which I'm an admin. The research of the data is for academic purposes. The group has over 70k users.
Please advise.

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

The NodeXL importers for Facebook have been recently updated.

Facebook importers are now standard parts of NodeXL's import menu line up.

No need to separately download, install and update the Facebook importers.

Your requested network is large, however. Can you scope the query to manage 10-20K vertices rather than the full 70K?

NodeXL requires a large amount of RAM to handle large networks. How large is the system you are using?

Your copy of NodeXL should update itself to include the latest Facebook importers. If not, please UNINSTALL NodeXL and then install the latest version (currently v.337).
