Usage

Linking to a profile or Page

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

{{Facebook|zuck|Mark Zuckerberg}}
Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook

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

{{Facebook |id=4 |name=Mark Zuckerberg}}
Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook

On the article about an individual, the display name and the article title will usually be identical and can be omitted. For example, on the article page Facebook, linking to their own Facebook profile could be done with:

{{Facebook|facebook}}
Facebook on Facebook

Generally, Wikidata should contain article subjects' Facebook IDs in property P2013, allowing the ID parameter to be omitted:

{{Facebook}}
{{Facebook |name=NAME }}

Linking to a specific section

Links to specific sections on a Facebook page used to include the '=' symbol in the URL but no longer need to. Because '=' is a special character in Wikipedia template syntax (which separates a parameter's name from its value), it cannot be used directly in the id. If you want the link to arrive at a specific section, use the newer URL syntax, for example to link directly to the Photos section of a profile, add /photos to the username:

{{Facebook|zuck/photos|name=Mark Zuckerberg}}
Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook
