I can't seem to find a way to find out the chronological order specific users 'liked' a page.

The main purpose would be to award say the 5000th user that joined "my" page. However, as much data as possible is also beneficial - be it acquired via standard means (via facebook site), or the facebook API (which I currently know nothing about).

Not answering your question at all, but why reward the 5,000th person for being a late adopter? – ahockley Oct 28 '10 at 18:55

Facebook terms prohibit you from providing prizes for people fanning your page - you have to offer the bonus as a sweepstakes that is accessible to all fans of your page.

For this reason, they don't let you see the order in which fans joined your page.

I think FB deletes the data or something like that. I have tried to find the data, but seems like they keep data (which falls under current timeline) online for some time, and after that they discard it.
