I have a colleague with the following query? Any ideas?
I need to find the easiest possible way of extracting posts and
responses from a private Facebook group. I am a member of this group
and I have permission from the administrators to access the posts for
the purposes of my research. I’ll likely be using NVivo to help
qualitatively analyze the posts. But, since I want to extract about a
year’s worth of posts and responses, and it’s a fairly busy group, to
do this manually is unmanageable.
I’m wondering if there’s software out there to help me do this or if
there’s a third-party I might be able to hire to help me with this
work. The problem seems to stem from the fact it’s a private vs. a
public Facebook group.
