Hi Catherine,
Before investing too much time in the technical specifics, I would suggest 
you contact Facebook and confirm they will not shut down your access once 
they identify you are crawling them. This has been an issue for my research 
team here at MSU and others I've spoken with.

I have seen other papers discuss this technique, but I need more specific details as to how to accomplish it.
