How to get your Facebook ID

Glenn Glenn's Blog Leave a Comment

These days Facebook tends not to show IDs, but rather a human readable link for your page such as https://www.facebook.com/username\companyname. However many scripts and WordPress plugins require the physical ‘ID’ which is a numerical number. You can still retrieve this number via the following tool:-

https://graph.facebook.com/username

Replace your ‘useranme’ with your actual Facebook username (company name, page name etc) and then visit the link. This will display a bunch of information about your Facebook page including the Facebook ID which is typically 11 lines from the bottom of the page like;-

 "id": "127063559543",
