Pull the date a Facebook Page was created


#1

Is it possible for your platform to pull the date that a Facebook Page was created (on Facebook), so that we can see how long they have been around for? This is useful when comparing the growth/engagement of two Pages and so on.

On top of this, it would also then allow us to know what date to select as the starting date period in reports.


#2

This is not in the api - althoug through trial and error you can get the oldest post, ever, of a page.


#3

Based on SocialInsider data, can we safely assume the oldest post is more or less the date a Page created?


#4

Yes, the oldest post is the earliest public artefact of a page. It can be considered as the starting point of the page because even had the page been created a year before - who cares - since it posted nothing.
