Agent,

Following on from my post, I wrote a couple of Transforms which use the Facebook API rather than scraping the html.

Basically they let you get a list of your friends on facebook, and then for each friend get a list of your mutual friends, so you can see how your friend network is organized (subject to your friends privacy settings).

The Facebook API doesn't let you get, for example, friends of friends, so you can't build up a complex social graph with many degrees of separation, but it might still be interesting to look at one's own friends.

The code is rough, but I am happy to share if you're interested.

Thanks,
G

Hi Gilgamesh,

With the facebook API, i believe you can actually do basic searching with just the API and an application/secret key on users who don't have the application installed. The one limitation with the API that i found however is that you cannot search via email address and will need to specify atleast one of the key fields within your FQL query.

If you need any help i did play around with it for a bit, it seems like it would work (i just used the sample PHP lib and ran an FQL Query)

Andrew,

Thanks for that, sounds interesting. Looking at the FQL documentation, it does seem that you can get info from the "user" table, so presumably you could just do something like

SELECT * from user where name="Andrew Mohawk"

I'm sure it isn't that simple though Smiley

Actually, it is *exactly* that simple! Perhaps we should start a new thread on this..

gilgamesh,
Can you share some of the rough work you have done with the api?
Just want to compare what I have to what you have.

thanx,
Daniel
