Using any Facebook API for Python, I am trying to get the # of people who shared my post and who those people are. I currently have the first part..
>>> from facepy import *
>>> graph = GraphAPI("CAAEr")
>>> g = graph.get('apple/posts?limit=20')
sharedposts connection will give you more information about the shares of a post. You have to
USER_ID?fields=sharedposts. This information doesn't appear in the doc.
This follows your code:
# Going through each of your posts one by one for post in g['data']: # Getting post ID id = post['id'] # Gives USERID_POSTID id[-17:] # We know that a post ID is represented by 17 numerals # Another Graph request to get the shared posts shares = graph.get(id + '?fields=sharedposts') print('Post' id, 'was shared by:') # Displays the name of each sharer print share['from']['name'] for share in shares['data']
It is my first time with Python, there might be some syntax errors in the code. But you got the idea.
