How to Check ID of Facebook Pages

Some visitors always ask how to check the ID of a new Facebook Page. If your Facebook Page got more than 25 Likes, you can get a easy-to-remember username, for example:

http://www.facebook.com/MyGreatNameHosting

The MyGreatNameHosting is the username of the above Facebook Page.

The basic information of a the above new Facebook Page can also be obtained in the same way:

https://graph.facebook.com/301704796592667

Therefore the id of Facebook Pages can easily be obtained.
