Frequently Asked Question

1.13 Facebook Fan Page

The Facebook Fan page asks you to indicate your "Fan Page ID".

First, if you'd like to create a Fan Page, click this link.
 
Second, after creating a fan page, upon visiting this page, the URL will display both the fan page name and ID:
 
Example: facebook.com/pages/Mr-Electric-of-Central-Indiana/137409539635096
 
It is the number portion of the page that is the "Fan Page ID" to use on the App page: facebook.com/pages/Mr-Electric-of-Central-Indiana/137409539635096
 
You can test the usability of the ID by visiting https://graph.facebook.com/putidhere
