i was wondering what i would need to do to execute code like this? I am semi-familiar with using things like wamp server to kinda just copy and paste friends stuff and change variables and launch in a new URL. I know python is fairly more intricate and complicated though so I assume it can't be that easy with this :) any advice?

How do you get a Facebook ID and Facebook auth token?

You have to sniff to get Facebook ID and Facebook auth token. There is no other way.

Copy link

umrashft, When you say sniff, you mean?

It doesn't work for me, why?

Facebook ID and auth key is correct

Just tried now again and got it working :-)
My FB_ID is extactly like this (untouched) > fb_id = '{ 12***91520 }'
and in the fb_auth_token I removed the { } from both sides, so it looks like that:

fb_auth_token = 'EAAGm0PX4ZCpsBADOHTeqmo5XQXLeQ73dDcHfZABUVqN14AmxmXHnNFEn5juZC1qynrInx9UpZAi5v0zrRn2ZArEZCUuiARwGIuMzmFaPvV5C114BuxhxqBinOuqHJtZBB*********************************************************************XsxnR3N8IonsOItFvHFuq9usZD'

Got this after like 2-3 minutes, how can I fix the script by adding some kind of sleep time ?
Edit: It's because it's a free user so the likes are limited, nothing to do with the script
