How do you analyze data of a Facebook PAGE?

GROUPS:
I'm trying to get data analyzed for a Facebook page that I run but all I can figure out is how to do my personal page.
Can anyone help?

The function SocialMedia data allows you to find out a number of things about your facebook friends as long as their privacy settings allow it. Please see the Details section in this page:

http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/SocialMediaData.html

It sounds like you are looking for information about people in a facebook group who aren't your friends which isn't what SocialMediaData is really designed to do. SocialMediaData implements a very useful subset of the full facebook API, but not the entire thing. There may be some functionality in the Facebook API which would be useful to you.

You may want to consult the underlying facebook API. This will tell you what kind of information facebook will actually allow you to have.

I may have misunderstood, but if you're interested in pages rather than profiles you can do the following:
SocialMediaData[{"Facebook", "mathematica"}, "Properties"]
For instance we can see how busy my colleagues are updating the official Wolfram Research facebook page with the following:
SocialMediaData[{"Facebook","mathematica"}, "ActivityWeeklyDistribution", "FormattedData"]



As Sean says you will get more from directly using the various APIs Facebook makes available.

Nice, Martin. Some other visual-ready stats I found:
Manipulate[
SocialMediaData[{"Facebook", "mathematica"}, k, "FormattedData"],
{{k, "ActivityRecentHistory", ""},
  {"ActivityRecentHistory", "ActivityTypes", "ActivityWeeklyDistribution", "Picture", "WallPostLength", "WallWeeklyAppActivity"}}]
