Hello all,

I've already used NodeXL and the SocialNetImporter for a term paper back in February and everything worked fine. Now I need it to create data for my bachelor thesis. I've downloaded and installed both NodeXL and the SocialNetImporter again today but I'm receiving an error message every time I try to import data from a Facebook Fan Page Network.

I firstly selected these options for the import:

And received this error message (and I've tried it several times and it always came up!)

I also tried importing with these options:

It starts working then, but stalls at the end of Step 2 and then, after a while I get the same error message as above.

Anyone knows why this happens and how I can prevent it from happening and make it work?
Quick answers are greatly appreciated.

Btw, the page I try importing from is this one: https://www.facebook.com/BVB.News?ref=ts&fref=ts (It's a German one)

Hi!

Try this (it worked with me).

You need to put your your operating system units format in english (United States).

Hello Hannah,

we are investigating the Facebook related problems that came up after they officially removed API 1.0 on 30th of April.

Hello again Hannah,

I noticed that the fan page you specified does not have any post from 1st of May until 6 of May and you have specified in your importer the date 2nd of May. I tried downloading data from 13th of May - Today and the import was successful.

Please try again with different dates and if you encounter any problem write to us.

Regards,
Arber
