Find Viral Photo from Facebook - FB FQL

15 replies
Hey Warriors!

I would like to share to you these techniques (I know others are selling this) how to search for a viral photo (could be very very useful for marketing).

When I was doing a search for some FB tools, I found this:


I told me self "I think I can create the same feature by using basic FQL codes and share it for free."

So here it is. Scroll down for screenshots.

Steps, Link and Codes you need:

Steps:

1. ) Go to Facebook Graph API Explorer

2.) Click FQL Query

3.) Click Get Token Access --> check user_about_me --> click "Get token Access" button.

Codes for First Step (Find viral pages with your own key words, mine is "dogs"):

Code:
SELECT name, page_id, fan_count, talking_about_count FROM page WHERE CONTAINS("dogs") 
ORDER BY talking_about_count desc LIMIT 50
Codes for Second Step (Sorting popular photo from selected page)

Code:
SELECT link, comment_info, like_info, pid, src_big FROM photo WHERE aid 
    IN (SELECT aid FROM album WHERE owner=41288731654)ORDER BY comment_info desc LIMIT 20

See these screenshots for step by step instructions:

1.) The search for pages to find viral photo (example: find FB pages "dogs" - change it to your targeted keyword search like fitness, cats, marketing, women, etc.)



2.) Sorting Process - Sort all images from your selected page from most popular images (comments and likes)



3.) Click the "Link"




So what do you think guys? Can anyone share how can this be helpful for marketing strategies?

Please click the "Thanks" button if you found this useful.

Have fun!

    I wouldn't have pulled a $9k week w/Teespring etc without the help of others, so it's time to pay it forward.
    I can make a little room in my life for that. ;)

    Surely there has to be an easier way to derive the same results without using SQL...I know SQL pretty well, but come on, how many others here do?! lol.. Or it just means we're the few who can benefit.

      They don't need to know SQL or FQL. The code is provided above. All the need is to see the images (results) to get it down and few instructions (copy paste).

      I hope someone here can share with the same results w/o using SQL or FQL.

        Ahhh, what I meant was having such background can be very powerful for people like us.. But yes, this is very helpful.

        I've had a couple of these viral photos come across my newsfeed and was wondering how they correlated with the 1-2,000 tee sales these guys were getting.

        Thanks for sharing!

    This helps my fan page and post get more engagement.

    More share, more likes, more engagement = more potential customers (how about a cat product huh?)
