QV Source Facebook connector

Hi Guys,

Does anyone use the QVSource facebook connector?  I am wondering if ALL data available through Facebook Insights is available through this connector?

Thanks

Gareth

Much of the insights data is exposed as an OData source which QVSource can connect to, we have a guide here:

But please let me know if it doesn't cover what you need.

Hi Gareth,

You can see the schema of data we expose here:

http://www.qvsource.com/wiki/Facebook-Connector.ashx#Schema_5

We added a lot to this last week and aim to expose more in future versions. Just let me know if there are other specific things you need and I can try to prioritise them.

I would like to use the Facebook connector to get advertising data out of facebook.  We run ads on facebook and it is tracked within facebook under our agency account.  Can the connector get this type of data?

Hi Peter,

We are expanding the Facebook connector gradually to cover new parts of the API.

Would you have time for a call next week so we can understand your requirements better and see if we can look into this soon?

Feel free to direct message me through the community site.

Re: QV Source Facebook connector

I am trying to  use the demo 'FacebookConnector Example' provided with QVX SDK. After rebuilding the connector in visual studio as mentioned in the pdf, I don't find the 'Custom Data' folder to copy the contents to. I am using Qlikview 11 personal edition in Windows Vista.  Please help in finding the right place to copy the built facebook connector exe and dll's.

Note:     In the pdf the folder is mentioned as -

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\QlikTech\Custom Data\QvFacebookConnector).
