Facebook target

Is there an equivalent api/target for finding facebook posts for a set of users given their userids?

For example - twitter.user.id in [1234, 454, 4564]

Hi,

There is no target to match interactions to specific users with the Facebook Public data source, as the author information is anonymized.

The Facebook Pages managed source is not anonymized, so specific users can be matched with the target facebook_page.from.id

More information on Facebook Pages targets can be found here: http://dev.datasift.com/docs/targets/facebook-pages

These users that I want to listen to need not be page owners. These are some regular users whose public posts I would like to listen to. As I understand your Facebook Pages api, this is more for tracking Facebook pages. Is my understanding correct.

Correct - the Facebook Pages Managed Source is for tracking activity on a defined set of Facebook Pages only (this can include posts from regular users to that Page).
