Dear Dina

I went to the Queensland University of Technology Summer School in Digital
Methods in Australia this February and learnt about a great tool for
extracting data from open Facebook groups. It is called Netvizz. You can
access it here:
Once you have extracted the data you can analyse it with other tools e.g.
NVivo, Gephy.

Dear Colleagues,

Can anyone suggests any good online tools that can help extract the Facebook
comments, I tried the Crazy Comment Export Tool but it doesn't works.

Appreciate your thoughts!

Best wishes,
