When searching for prospects on Facebook, you, just like most people, probably run into the copy-paste mode by default, only later to realize that 15 minutes had gone by and you’re just on your 8th prospect in the spreadsheet. Sounds familiar?
Facebook is a powerful tool for marketing, research, and communication but manually scraping data from it can be frustrating.
With this automation, you can focus on using the data you scrape, instead of wasting time on the tedious process of copy-pasting information and constantly switching between tabs.
