To search for a user:

  • User name: python3 fisherman.py -u name name.profile name.profile2
  • ID: python3 fisherman.py -i 000000000000

The username must be found on the facebook profile link, such as:

https://facebook.com/name.profile/

It is also possible to load multiple usernames from a .txt file, this can be useful for a brute force output type:

python3 fisherman.py --use-txt filename.txt

Some profiles are limited to displaying your information for any account, so you can use your account to extract. Note: this should be used as the last hypothesis, and the target profile must be on your friends list:

python3 fisherman.py --email [email protected] --password yourpass

Some situations:
  • For complete massive scrape:

    python3 fisherman.py --use-txt file -o -c -sf

    With a file with dozens of names on each line, you can make a complete "scan" taking your information and even your family members and will be compressed into a .zip at the output.

  • For specific parts of the account:

    • Basic data: python3 fisherman.py -u name --specify 0
    • Family and relationship: python3 -u name --specify 2
    • It is still possible to mix: python3 fisherman.py -u name --specify 0 2
  • To get additional things like profile picture, how many followers and how many friends:

    python3 fisherman.py -u name -s
