Download Facebook group members list
Facebook is no wonder, one of the most popular social sites in the world. One of the best feature of Facebook is Groups. Facebook groups have enabled connecting people of the common interests. For example Facebook groups for Bloggers, Linux lovers, Cricket fans etc. One of the key requirement on Facebook group is getting the members list. A lot of Facebook application and websites which provided such information are shut down due to the Terms of service. Facebook has a limit on exporting the group members information. If you the admin of a group you will be able to download only upto 500 members in facebook group.
How did I manage to overcome the limit
Very recently I managed to get the information all the members in a Facebook group called ‘Techism’. I was neither the admin nor the moderator of the group, hence I did not have enough permission to export the members list. Even if I would have been the admin, I still would have obtained only 500 members information.
I solved this issue in another way. Facebook had a small loop hole through which the members list could be obtained. However posting instructions on how to retrieve list of facebook group members will be against their TOS, hence I do not disclose the method here.
