If you have a Facebook page with a URL like this: `https://www.facebook.com/Your_Page_Name` then the Page ID is just `Your_Page_Name`. If your Facebook page URL is structured like this: `https://www.facebook.com/pages/Your_Page_Name/123654123654123` then the Page ID is actually the number at the end, so in this case `123654123654123`.

- The Facebook feed you're trying to display has to be from a publicly accessible Facebook page. This means that you can't display the feed from your own personal Facebook profile or Facebook group. This is to do with Facebook's privacy policies. You can't display a non-public Facebook feed publicly.

If your Facebook page has any restrictions on it (age, for example) then it means that people have to be signed into Facebook in order to view your page. This isn't desirable for most Facebook pages as it means that it isn't accessible by people who don't have a Facebook account and that your Facebook page can't be crawled and indexed by search engines.
