I want to read data from a group in Facebook to make a statistical analysis (number of posts by each member, number of "likes", etc.).
How can I access Facebook to extract this information?
I would appreciate any information that could point me in the right direction.

I just tried a thing quickly !
[Object Status] = urlread('https://graph.facebook.com/Mathworks')
The Object should contain the relevant data which could be parsed to get the required info and the status returns if the attempt succeded !
Getting a good JSON object parser would make extracting information more easier though !
I tried using one of the file exchange submission here and it works smoothly with no issues !
Hope this helps better !
Here is an API published by facebook http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/api/
You should combine the calls with the matlab functions like urllread ..etc to get the data that you require !
Let me know if you need help !
