How do I export Facebook Fans?

To All,

Can someone clearly explain this (http://adamloving.com/internet-programming/how-toexport-facebook-page-fans) post to me in the most simple way possible?

I've got Ruby on Rails on my computer, I've got the script. What I need explained is how to "substitute the value of your cookies and the form values in the HTTP post body" and how to run the script.

Can someone do that for me easily?

Thanks,
Andrew

Welcome blkburn, your link shows how to export to csv, then you can use my link to import to your ruby on rails software in the csv format, then life is good ;)

I appreciate the response, but the link you sent me is not relevant to my needs.

What I was looking for was a way to export all the users that "like" my page on facebook. While you're about to export the list of group members or a list of friends, the facebook API does not have the capability to export the fans of a page, presumably so that companies cannot market directly to people who just use the "like" button. I was looking up the HTTP Request traces to see what the calls are just to see the fans of a page, but I could not either a. get a correct access token from facebook, b. run Ruby to simulate the HTTP requests, or c. be allowed to pull down all the users under the facebook terms of use.

Either way, this question is unnecessary now. Thanks for the attention.
