2 Easy Steps To Find Facebook Profile And Page ID

We need to find Facebook profile and page ID for several occasions, even a small WordPress plugin needs it now. This guide will help you to find it easily. If you are using a custom username for your Facebook profile or page, then unique profile ID will not appear. You can enter custom username where profile ID may be required. Facebook Like Box and some other plugins require this unique ID.

Steps To Find Facebook Profile And Page ID

Below I mentioned two easy and simple steps to find the Facebook Profile or Page ID. In this tutorial, I have used Mozilla Firefox and it is recommended!


Locate Facebook Profile ID – Procedure

1. Go to that Facebook Profile/Page. [Mozilla Firefox]

2. Right click on the Profile/Page Image and choose ‘Properties’

Firefox - Properties

A dialog box named ‘Element Properties’ pops. In the element properties Dialog box, check the ‘Address’ under ‘Link Properties’.

The address will be similar to this :

http://www.facebook.com/album.php?profile=1&id=137527299736

Find Facebook Profile And Page ID

In this address URL, ’137527299736′ is the page ID.


Alternate Method – Finding Facebook ID

If the above mentioned method didn’t work for you, then you can try this.

Use Facebook Graph API

You can use Facebook Graph API for detecting your ID. General format is :

https://graph.facebook.com/yourusername

Suppose if your username is “hellboundbloggers”, then it will be,

https://graph.facebook.com/hellboundbloggers

You will get the following details in JSON format. Here you can find the ID in the first line.

{
“id”: “1058521934″,
“name”: “Pradeep Kumar”,
“first_name”: “Pradeep”,
“last_name”: “Kumar”,
“link”: “https://www.facebook.com/hellboundbloggers”,
“username”: “hellboundbloggers”,
“gender”: “male”,
“locale”: “en_US”
}

    This is wrong. This method doesn't work anymore.

    1) Like the page
    2) As brand fan page admin go with the mouse cursor over the like "People like this" and you see the Facebook Page ID.

    If you are not an admin ask to an admin to tell you the Facebook Page ID.
