A Facebook Scraper for the Punch Time Explosion Fan Page

This is a very basic Facebook scraper that scrapes the Punch Time Explosion fan page posts and comments - this was built for the purpose of doing some basic statistical analysis on Travis Cox's, um, interesting posts.

It imports all posts into a mongodb database, so you'll need ruby and the Mongoid gem. Run it as follows:

$ ruby travis.rb fb_api_key

You can get a Facebook API key at - just click "Get Access Token" then copy-paste.

There's a basic stats.rb file as an example of the kind of stats that can be generated. Future ideas for expansion would be sentiment analysis, writing level analysis, posts-per-month, etc.

Thanks for the fun, Travis! :)
