Project Description

I need someone to create a database of Facebook pages with: their ID number, page name, type, and number of likes. Here's my suggested approach, which requires 2 scripts to complete. If you have a better method, by all means go ahead.


First, create a script (in the language of your own preference) that will scrape data from this page [url removed, login to view] and gather Page_ids for every Facebook page.

The script needs to:

1) eliminate duplicates (each page id is duplicated several times in the source)

2) load successive pages ad infinitum

3) insert data into a database (mySQL)


Next, we will need another automated script to run this query in FQL (Facebook Query Language) for every page_id returned from the previous script. We will be querying for page name, type, and number of likes, to fill the other columns of the Lexicon

[url removed, login to view] page_id, name, type, fan_count FROM page WHERE page_id = ?

This data should be automatically used to update the mySQL database and fill in the remaining columns.


Please don't hesitate to ask questions or make suggestions. I am very open to new approaches to solving this problem.
