I was in this Digital Marketing group on Facebook and a lot of members were talking about parsing websites to obtain potential customer information. But before diving deep into scraping Facebook Groups or LinkedIn, I wanted to make sure I understood the fundamentals of web scraping first. So here’s where I started, by learning to parse HTML code from one of my favorite Python teacher on YouTube, Corey Schafer.
The main thing we did for our codes is to find information by inspecting elements on your browser. I’ve used this tool a lot whenever I forget my password or wanted to change certain elements on someone else’s website just for fun. I’m glad I’ve found a new way to use it!
