What is it

Investigators, researchers or other analysts often have to get local copies of Facebook data. It can be necessary for a lot of reasons like submitting Facebook data as evidence, doing advanced offline analysis, etc. But Facebook interface has not been designed for that and does not provide printing or saving functions.

ExtractFace has been designed to help people to extract data from Facebook. It provides usefull functions to automate a lot of tasks that have to be done manually otherwise. See documentation for more details.

  • ExtractFace is now working on Google Chrome.
  • Supported functions in this new version are: Dump Albums, Dump Friends, Dump Mutual Friends, Dump Contributors, Dump Comments and Dump Group Members.
  • ExtractFace is now using 3 separated processes:
    • ExtractFace.exe: The taskbar menu.
    • ExtractFace-Load.exe: Dump interfaces where you prepare the dump process.
