    Social Media Scraping

    I want to scrap social media facebook & twitter mainly for content of interest and load it onto my site (linking it back to the social media outlet of course).

    It's not just my social channel I want to scrap. I want to look for hashtags of 'interest' and load them.

    I've seen it done before and there are heaps of commercial ones that offer all sorts of bells and whistles I don't need. I just want basic bear bones.

    How can I get started?

    If they have an API you can use, that's probably where to start. For Twitter, e.g.: https://dev.twitter.com/overview/api

    IMPORTANT: STOP using the mysql extension. Use mysqli or pdo instead.
