How To Download & Search Facebook Comments
As long as the post you are interested in comes from a publicly available Facebook page, our tool can download the comments. Postchup will be able to export the 5,000 most recent primary comments. This is the limit that Facebook has actually set themselves so it is not possible to download more than this figure.
Once you have identified the post, when the report is complete, you can easily download it. When exported to CSV, the opened document will look like this:
The key data field you will be interested in will be the “content”, aka the comments from Facebook users.
Here, you can begin to search Facebook comments for your criteria of interest. This could include keyword lookup, answers or thought benchmarking or picking winners from Facebook comment contests.
You will also be able to explore a number of valuable metrics such as:
- Facebook comment ID
- The time & date the comment was made
- Number of likes comments received
