FaceGrab: Facebook Image Grab

Author

Grab everyone's Facebook profile image without any login and create an image dataset. This python library will provide a simple API or direct usage to grab any number of full-size facebook profile images of users. No login is required to generate this data-set of facebook images. The generated image-set could be useful for the purposes of research (Machine Learning, Image Processing), or marketing or maybe more.
