    I’m looking for a way to dump a listing of all the “Friends of Friends” on Facebook for social engineering. Does anyone know of a tool, service or API that I can use to accomplish this? Knowing the “Friends of Friends” on an account can allow you to see into other data or be given more access to users of interest.

    I was thinking that Maltego could do it, but I can’t seem a way to go the next step and find the Friends “Friends” data. The first level of Friends is easy.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    i don’t know any tool but i think it’s not easy and you won’t be able to find those people for example who sets his/her friend list on only me to see the list or someone who is not searchable on fb and so on. It needs alot of work.

    Create an attractive fake person on fb and send him/her friend request, if you failed, then try to send  friend request to his/her friends

    Anyway i hate client side attacks it is not technical!!

    I agree – It’s more for recon than anything else.

    If you come across anything let me know, I’d be interested in it.

    It won’t normalize the data for you but there is a Firefox add-on called “scrapbook” that will let you acquire a copy of the webpage and click on the links and save those pages as well. You can set how many levels down you want it to go.

    I tested it (with permission) on a friend of mine’s Facebook account who has a ton of friends. It took all night to run but I then had a cached local copy of the pages of all of their friends.

    Hi matt . If you really want  to get best social engineering , you must spend a lot of time for that . All programs and services  isn’t so effective .

    Depending on the privacy settings you can find friends of friends of X in the following manner:
    1) Find the ID of person X’s
    2) Enter https://facebook.com/search/FACEBOOKID/friends/friends

    It will rarely give you all friends of friends, but at least you get a starting point.
