Find your Facebook ID

I’ve been working a ton on Facebook integration, and we’ll continue to keep rolling out new features and improvements for ProPhoto in the weeks to come. While I was working, I came across the fact that for many Facebook social plugins, you are required to know your personal Facebook numeric ID (mostly to fill in the “fb:admins” meta tag). But, Facebook does not give any simple way to find that ID.

Anyway, I quickly built a simple utility website that allows people to paste their Facebook profile URL into a form and it will scrape their numeric ID from the code of their profile page. We may be directing people there in the future, or building in a similar functionality into the ProPhoto core.

But, for anyone who wants to, now you can easily find your Facebook numeric id.
