This subset is gathering all network automation such as:
- Group members
- Event attendees
- Interests (likers)
First, let's search for events in your niche. In this example, upcoming events about "startups".
To find those events, type your keyword topic in LinkedIn search and filter by Events.
This search will display all the upcoming events in this niche:
Select an event in the list.
When you find one that interests you, join and attend the event:
Now you will be able to see the attendees. Copy and paste the event link in TexAu, and you will get the last 1000 attendees.
If you want to scrape all attendees: the best is to attend the event as soon it appears. Then schedule TexAu to run every day. That way, you will extract daily all the new attendees joining.
Or, you can also scrape event attendees by using this automation:
Extract Profiles From Linkedin Search.
After attending the event, click on the attendees' list:
You will land on a regular LinkedIn search filter. From there, copy the search filter URL and paste it in TexAu:
To extract LinkedIn Group members, first, you must join a group on LinkedIn. You can join a maximum of 100 groups.
After that, go to your profile on the left "Groups" sidebar and click any group you belong to:
Once on the group's main page, copy its URL, then paste it in TexAu. You will be able to scrape a maximum of 5000 last members per group. It will always start at the top scraping the most recent 5000 members of the group at a given date.
No, you cannot scrape the total number of members, LinkedIn shows only the last 5K. But you can schedule that automation to run every day to add the new members.
If you run the same input (group URL) every day, TexAu will allow you to collect only the new members after the last 10,000 members.
Each run can collect up to 5,000 members. So to collect the last 10,000 members of a group, you will need to run the automation twice manually.
- On the first run, you collect the last 5,000 members of a group.
- In the second manual run, it will collect 5,000 additional members up to 10,000 maximum
- Then each new manual run, TexAu will only collect the new members, without any duplicates.
You can re-run a spice manually from the logs. Just click on “open spice with these results”.
Another good way to target profiles from interests is to scrape people who attended and liked a course on LinkedIn. That way, you know that if they like a course about a particular topic, they are more likely to be interested in this niche.
First, in your profile, go to the "Work" menu then "Learning":
From there, pick any course you want:
On the course presentation page, you will see the number of members who liked this course. Click on it, and this will reveal all the likes and profiles the course has received.
Copy the course link and paste it in TexAu. You can extract up to 6000 profiles.
This automation will extract the last 2500 profiles who liked a post on LinkedIn.
To run this automation, input your cookies and the post URL to extract the likes from TexAu.
With TexAu, you can extract your LinkedIn connections within the limit of 5000 profiles.
You can choose to extract them from the newest to the oldest or vice versa.
You can also use time filters only to extract the latest from this:
Here no need to input anything except your connection cookie, then run the automation:
Note that if you have more than 5000 connections in your network, you will need to use another method. For this, you can use LinkedIn profile search or Sales Navigator leads search results. To achieve this, you will need to filter your 1st-degree connections and break them down by role and location. Then you will be able to extract them all at once. We will cover this in another tutorial.
You can extract any profile followers in the limit of 10.000 profiles.
First, copy the profile URL you want to extract the followers from and copy it to TexAu.
Note that you can schedule this automation to extract the remaining followers of a profile. At first, TexAu will extract 5000 followers. But when you schedule it to run at regular intervals, let's say every 15 minutes, you will collect the remaining. The current maximum number of followers or followings you can extract is 200K profiles.
Like Twitter Followers spice, we will extract the following of a profile:
Same as before, copy the profile URL you want to extract the following and paste it in TexAu:
You can extract all the followers of an Instagram profile. But providing this profile isn't private.
Copy the URL of the profile and paste it in TexAu. That way, you will be able to extract its followers. The extraction limit is 7000 followers.
Note that you can schedule this automation to extract the remaining followers of a profile. At first, TexAu will extract 7000 followers. But when you schedule it to run at regular intervals, let's say every 15 minutes, you will collect the remaining. The current maximum number of followers or followings you can extract is 200K profiles.
Like Instagram Followers, you can also extract any profile followings with TexAu. Again, providing the target profile is not private.
Same as before, copy the Instagram profile URL and paste it into TexAu to run the automation.
The limit is the same as with followers: a maximum of 7000 profiles. But when scheduled you can collect the remaining profiles up to 200K.
This automation allows extracting all the Instagram profiles that watched your stories.
Why is it helpful? Because that's the only way to know who watched your profile on Instagram and a great way to make new followers.
You could extract the people who watch your stories and then auto-comment, auto-like, and follow these profiles so they can follow you back too.
To use this automation, input your Instagram session ID cookie and launch.
Like we did with LinkedIn group members, we can do the same and extract Facebook group members. You can extract up to 8000 group members with this automation.
To find the group name URL, you must click on any post date to will reveal the Facebook group URL:
Finally, copy the Facebook group URL then paste it into TexAu.
DO NOT use the group ID URL. Otherwise, the automation won't work. Ex: https://www.facebook.com/groups/965673390154514 (incorrect) The URL should be alphabetical, like this: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SaaSgrowthhacking Both redirect to the same group, but only the one above will work. There are exceptions to this rule: some rare groups only have the group ID URL format. If that's the case, then you can use the latter. But always grab Group URL by clicking on a post date as explained above.
You can scrape friends from any Facebook profile. But providing they allow to show it their account preferences.
It can be a public profile or your friends' profiles.
Some friends' profiles only share the friends they have in common with you. Some show all their friends. So the extraction results will also depend on that.
The maximum number of friends you can extract is 3500 friends per profile.
Enter your target profile URL in TexAu to extract its friends:
You can extract the likes of a Facebook Page, Profile, or Group Posts with that automation.
First, find a post you want to extract.
To find the post URL, click on the post date.
You will then see the post URL in your browser navigation bar:
To run this automation, copy and paste your cookies and the post URL you want to extract in TexAu:
You can also extract Slack channel members with TexAu.
For this, you will need to connect to the browser version of Slack to copy your connection cookie.
You will notice that a Slack channel URL contains both the Slack Workspace and Channel IDs:
To extract the members of a channel, it's straightforward. First, click on a channel you belong to. Then copy its URL from your browser.
Slack channel example:
Then copy the Slack workspace URL into a notepad. We will use it later.
Example input for workspace URL:
Then we will need to copy the Slack channel ID.
Example input for channel ID:
Finally, paste your session cookie, Slack Workspace URL, and Channel ID in TexAu to run this automation:
Like Instagram and Twitter, you can also extract Quora profile followers:
The most significant number of followers you can pull is 5000 profiles.
Copy the Quora profile URL, then paste it into TexAu to run the automation.
In the same way you can extract followers, you can also pull the Quora profile following:
Same as before, copy the target Quora profile URL and paste it into TexAu:
