Check if someone Likes a specific Facebook Page

Discussion in 'Facebook API' started by NaSh123, Apr 10, 2011.

    I was wondering if there is a way, using the Graph API, to check if a specific user likes a specific Facebook Page.
    SEMrush
    I know this can be done post-Authentication, but what about if I don't use Facebook Connect. Can I somehow check this?

    You can try the FQL query statement.

    $likeID = $facebook->api( array( 'method' => 'fql.query', 'query' => "SELECT source_id FROM connection WHERE source_id ='$user[id]' AND target_id = '$pageId'" ) );
    
    if($likeID){
        echo "User has liked the page";
    }else{
        echo "User hasn't liked the page yet";
    }

    Agreed, FQL.query is the way forward. Just make sure that you cache the result, otherwise you'll spend all day wasting API calls and, no doubt, having some failures.
