Pulling data from Facebook limits RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working new company and my first task was facebook analysis..

    now when I finished... it worked for some "Pages" and didn't work for other "pages + users profiles"..

    it gave me for pages

     DataSource.Error: An unknown error occurred Details:


     DataSource.Error: An unknown error occurred Details: 

    and no data come form 'users profiles' it give me error too "except my profile",,,

    what a great data analysis

    now I feel its not more than a school assignment not a company project.... how other programs and apps can give you a full analysis on a page or profile on facebook. how they get their data? 

    I'm using power query is there any other tools that can help me more ?

  • Hi,

    Sorry you are having troubles with our Facebook connector. I can think of some reasons that might lead to the errors you are seeing but I won't be able to make conclusive decision or suggest a workaround without seeing the query and fiddler traces that reproduces the problem.

    You can click send a frown in Excel Power Query tab and attach your query and fiddler traces, then send it to us. I will work on it as soon as we get it :)

    One question, and feel free to rather answer it in the frown email:

    - Are you or the account you are using to sing into Facebook in PowerQuery and admin on all the pages you are trying to read?

    Thanks, Hadeel
