How do you link to a Facebook Page in a comment using its PageId? I remember it was something like:

@[id:name]

You can just use @Page Name now. You can encapsulate it in [ ] if it's a rather long one, but there will be an auto-complete-type list that appears underneath. You don't need to have "liked" the pages you're trying to reference in a comment or post.

i find sometimes the autocomplete doesn't work though. –  Evan Carroll Mar 2 '12 at 7:34
    
In what instances? It's pretty insistent for me, usually picking up names of my friends that I'm typing even without the @. –  Dez Mar 2 '12 at 15:20
    
Just recently I was unable to link to the Jerry White page with tab completion.. You give it a try. –  Evan Carroll Sep 1 '12 at 22:38
    
I was able to do it after Liking the page you linked: cl.ly/image/1j0F1A2s2I18 –  Dez Sep 4 '12 at 3:54
    
I've had instances where not even that worked. =( It's just buggy and the @[] notation is still very useful. Besides, everyone knows about the default way to link without PageId. –  Evan Carroll Sep 4 '12 at 6:20

@[id:linkname] will work if you know the Facebook Page ID.

  • linkname is anyname you want.
  • id is the Facebook Page Id

It appears that this does not work anymore. –  Christopher Rucinski Jun 21 at 8:22
