How To Get My Facebook User ID?

- July 02, 2012

It’s weird how you need your facebook user id for severall things, such as to give moderator power to some user (or yourself) in order to be able to, for example, moderate the SEO Facebook Comments. I mean it’s weird because despite being something that you need for many things there is no easier or direct way to get your User ID.

Just follow the two steps bellow:

  1. Be sure that you are already logged in in Facebook
  2. Go to this page , it should make a GET request to facebook using your ID, it will be show in a gray box and the information will be something like this:
	“name”: “YOUR FULL NAME”,
	“first_name”: “FIRST NAME”,
	“last_name”: “LAST NAME”,
	“link”: “”,
	“username”: “USERNAME”,
	“gender”: “male”,
	“locale”: “pt_BR”,
	“type”: “user”

After you get your USER ID from the link above just insert it in the field “Admin ID” of the SEO Facebook Comments plugin (or any other Facebook Plugin) and everything should work just fine.

Any doubts or problems, well, you could also leave a comment bellow.
