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

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}}

Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook
