FACEBOOK Groups Search Keywords Posts
The RTILA Automation Template is a powerful tool that automates certain tasks on Facebook groups, specifically searching for specific keywords and extracting relevant information. This template simplifies the process by iterating through a list of groups that you provide.
To use the template, you need to input the list of groups you want to search into the designated area. Each line in the list represents a group and follows a specific structure. The first word in each line is the keyword you want to search within that group, followed by a delimiter (a colon), and then the URL of the group. You can include as many groups as you want, allowing for scalability.
Once you’ve set up the list, the automation template will start executing the process. It will visit each group and perform the following steps:
- Disable the selector and mimic the necessary actions.
- Click on the search bar and enter the keyword.
- Wait for the search results to appear.
- Hover over the date of each post to generate the URL.
- Extract the results, including the URL, for further analysis.
Facebook’s behavior poses a challenge since it does not generate post URLs by default. However, hovering over the date reveals the URLs temporarily. The automation template takes care of this by hovering over each post’s date for a few seconds, allowing the URLs to appear and be captured.
The template repeats these steps for each group in the list, ensuring comprehensive coverage of all specified groups. It provides flexibility for scrolling through unlimited search results, allowing you to retrieve as much or as little data as needed.
Once the automation completes, you can review the results. The template captures the URLs, post owners, keywords, and group names, presenting them in a convenient format for analysis. You can use this information for various purposes, such as monitoring discussions, tracking specific posts, or extracting valuable insights.
