If you select this option a single comment should have a minimum number of friends mentioned before it's included in the export. You can choose up to 10 friends mentioned.

Include comment replies

If you enable this option comment replies are included in the comment export. By default, comment replies are excluded in the comment export. You will get the parent comment ID of the reply in the export.

If this filter is enabled we will filter out multiple comments made by one user. Only the first comment of this user will be included in the export. A user is defined by a user ID that we get from Facebook.

Filter comments based on a specific text

If you enable this filter an extra text field will appear where you can enter a specific text, hashtag or answer. A comment should contain this text to be included in the export.
