Pull the date a Facebook Page was created


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.


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


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


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.
