Facebook Comment ID


Staff member
I am trying to synchronize facebook comments with wordpress comments.

And I am wondering why Facebook comment id is different for status and object (of the same wall post). I am getting the comments via FQL, and when queried by post id, then the comment ID is of the format "279659443812183_454543377958451_3088653" (fanpageid_postid_commentid). But when queried by object id, I am getting comment ID in this format "454543377958452_3088653" (objectid_commentid).

And totally strange. When posting a comment via app, whether to "post id" or to "object id", the comment id which is returned has always the same format. This is bad when I want to compare the comment ids.

Is this documented anywhere? Can´t find it.
