How to find a Facebook Page ID

So you visit a Facebook page, and you want to find out its ID – the unique number that represents the page in the Facebook database. How do you find it out?

Well, one simple way involves inspecting the profile picture’s link, like so:

The Simpsons Facebook Page

Right – Click the profile picture (in this case, Homer), and select Copy Link Address. Then paste it to a text editor and you will see it looks like:

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150919682383697&set=a.455775213696.233520.29534858696&type=1

The Facebook Page ID is the number after the last decimal point, in this case: 29534858696

Power users: skip the above steps and dive straight into the Facebook Graph Explorer.
