How to get the "Like ID" of a Facebook page

Follow

The Facebook: Like ID is a unique code used by Facebook to check and identify each page. This article will show how to get a Like ID for a Facebook page. As an example, we'll show the steps to getting the Like ID for https://www.facebook.com/cloud4wi.

The easiest method is using the “Content Block” feature to generate this ID. Please note, in this article we are just going to get a "Like ID" value, and we are not creating a content block. The process to create a content block is available in Define content blocks for your Welcome Portal.

Go to Guest Wi-Fi → Setup → Welcome Portals from the sidebar and click on the Contents button and click Add. This will redirect you to a “New Content” page and from there, choose Type drop-down option and choose Facebook. This will enable a tab containing Welcome Portal languages at the bottom.

For our purpose, it is not important which language we select. We can select any language and click the Get Social ID button shown in the picture.

Then a model window is displayed: enter the full Facebook profile URL if the field is not populated and click Apply to get the required ID. If a valid Facebook page URL is provided, the window will return with the corresponding Like ID (in our case, it is "64867631703").
