PHP utility to lookup Facebook/LinkedIn users

I'm looking for a way to look-up a person by their name and location (and company if possible) on Facebook and/or LinkedIn. If no such person exists in that general location, I want it to return this fact to me. If the person does exist, I'd like any additional information available about this person.

I briefly looked at the Facebook and LinkedIn API's and I don't think this can be done using them. So I think we need some sort of screen scraping solution where it does a search by simulating a web browser and then parses the contents that get returned.

My programming language of choice for this is PHP.

Since this code will need to be integrated into a larger application, ideally I'd want the interface to be two simple functions like this:

some simple PHP functions:

function find_facebook_user($name, $city, $state, $country) {


function find_linkedin_user($name, $city, $state, $country) {


Each would return False if no match found, or an array of whatever interesting information there is about the person, such as age, etc.
