API EXCEPTION?

Jan 24, 2015 at 1:51 PM
In short a system error comes up saying "API EXCEPTION" I believe I have accessed Facebook through NodeXL too many times? so it has caused it to block of some form.

If you have any advice on this it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Hello Yasin,

can you please paste the full error message so I can give you a better answer?

Facebook has three different rate limits:
  1. 600 calls per 600 seconds (the importer detects this error and pauses for 600 seconds, you should see a message in the status bar)
  2. Application limit request reached (not handled by the importer since the waiting time is variable and unknown)
  3. User limit request reached (not handled by the importer since the waiting time is variable and unknown)
If the error message doesn't include any of the above reasons probably this is another error and you should retry.

Regards,
Arber
