Facebook Profile ID : How to get it

If you have installed the new Facebook comment form on your blog and interested in receiving Facebook notifications everytime someone comments on your blog via the Facebook comment form, you will need to add some codes to your blog html , which will require your "Facebook Profile ID". If you insert the wrong "Profile ID in the code, you will not be receiving the notifications.

How To Get Your Facebook Profile ID


If you have claimed your Facebook Username via www.facebook.com/username , you can easily get your profile ID by visiting graph.facebook.com/YourUsername

i.e if your Facebook Username is Jide, then visit graph.facebook.com/Jide to get your profile ID.

Right on the page, you will see your profile ID


1. Login to www.facebook.com  ( .. via a Computer)
2. Go to  http://www.facebook.com/pages or http://www.facebook.com/pages/browser.php
3. Click on "MY PAGES" as seen in the picture below.

4. You will see the LIST of facebook Pages you have liked.

5. Copy the url from your browser and paste in a notepad.

You should see something like: http://www.facebook.com/browse/fanned_pages/?id=100002141273089

The string of numbers in the url is your Facebook ID ( in red)

Note: the ID above is just an example, do not use it as your Profile ID.

That's all.

Simplye because you visited graph.facebook.com/yourusername without using your own Facebook username. You have to replace "yourusername" with your Facebook Username.
