wget pages that load at scroll bottom

I played a little with wget, don't know it well. I'd like to use it in a script that would load Facebook timeline page down to a certain depth.

Since recently Facebook pages load additional content as the user scrolls to the bottom of the browser window. I haven't looked at how that's done, I'm assuming it's some Ajax thing.

Can wget trigger such additional loading?

Run developer tools in your browser (every major one has something like that). It should have a network tab (or something like that) which will let you figure out URLs of the additional pages that are being loaded.

The second part of the puzzle is getting cookies right, but for that all you need to use is --load-cookies, --save-cookies and --keep-session-cookies.
