Facebook on Facebook

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage[change source]

The first parameter for the {{Facebook}} template is the name of the Facebook account. This can be found in the page's URL. For example: if the URL is http(s)://www.facebook.com/example, then the account name is example. The second parameter is the description or display name.

Examples[change source]

In this example, the Facebook user account is markzuckerberg and the description in the link is Mark Zuckerberg:

 {{Facebook|markzuckerberg|Mark Zuckerberg}}

Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook

In this example, there's an ID instead of user name:

 {{Facebook|id=markzuckerberg/68310606562|name=Mark Zuckerberg}}

Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook

Links containing the = sign[change source]

Links to specific sections on a Facebook page may include the '=' symbol in the URL. For example, the string '?v=wall' would indicate the "Wall" section. Because '=' is a special character in Wikipedia template syntax, it cannot be used directly in the id. If you want the link to arrive at a specific section, use Template:= instead. For example, to link to the "Notes" section:

 {{Facebook|id=markzuckerberg/68310606562?v{{=}}notes|name=Mark Zuckerberg}}
