    I'd also like to know this. Surely you can upload FB ID's as it says?

    I tried @facebook.com addresses that I scraped and it didn't seem to work because it couldn't match them it said.

    You can make Ads with scraped emails but you need to be very careful how you scrape them. I don't recommend using any software for this. Manually it's the best method

      I don't think you can because I tried it and it doesn't seem to match any addresses to users

    You can use IDs. I have done that successfully.

    lol did you ask "How does one "legally" get FB ID"? Just because it is against FB TOS doesn't mean it's illegal. All of the big marketers do it.

    I don't think that's possible.
