Hi Virginia,

remember that companies can use expiration dates for their Facebook posts.
This means that sometimes past posts will not be accessible anymore. My
advice is always to collect the data as soon as possible. or at least allow
a few weeks to let the comments accumulate.
As Deen correctly states Rfacebook can do what you want. A nice package.

best regards
