NOTE:

Facebook changes the markup of it's pages regularly, so the script might break from time to time. Please open an issue if something doesn't work and I'll take a look at it. Pull requests are welcome as well.

TODO:

  • Make script check for followers if friend list isn't public.
  • Add more error handling.
  • Add proxy rotation.
