Description

Pulls down publicly available information for a given Facebook profile - useful for finding a Facebook ID from a username.

Installation

$ npm install fbinfo

Usage

If called without any parameters, it will prompt you for username to lookup, otherwise it'll take the first argument as a username and attempt to lookup using that.

Example

$ fbinfo zuck

Will return

id: 4
name: Mark Zuckerberg
first_name: Mark
last_name: Zuckerberg
link: http://www.facebook.com/zuck
username: zuck
gender: male
locale: en_US

Likewise the same information could be brought back using

$ fbinfo 4

Where "4" is the Facebook ID of a user (in this case, Mark Zuckerberg)
