For instance, maybe you need to get contents related to all Facebook posts that consist of hashtag #FunMoments.

Thereafter, you will have to find a methodology to import that spreadsheet into your application or platform or system. This process looks simple but could be a very herculean task to deal with. Also, it would not be possible to update it every now and then. Instead, the easiest way is that Facebook provides a way to query their application to get access to that database and view it into your own application. Here is where API can come into the picture.
