To search for a company employees on Facebook, we need to know the company ID (a long number). Here is how to obtain the ID for a company.
I will be using Google as an example; the hack will work for any company if you replace “google” with your company name in the following steps.
First, let’s look for the page corresponding to our company by searching for Employers named “Google” with this Graph Search link:
Here is what it looks like. The arrow in the screenshot points to the most popular result – that is the page for Google. We need to find that pages’ ID.
The URL for the Google company page is https://www.facebook.com/Google/; the ID is not part of it, but we will find it shortly.
To find the ID, let’s go to the company page https://www.facebook.com/Google/. Right-mouse-click on the logo and copy the link for the logo:
The copied link looks like this: https://www.facebook.com/104958162837/photos/10155724905022838/. The middle number on the link (104958162837 in this case) is the company ID! That’s it.
Now we can search for Google employees using the ID, like this:

Good one. Funny thing is that when I go to facebook.com/Google Facebook in its infinite wisdom automatically redirects me to the page for Google Netherlands (https://www.facebook.com/GoogleNederland/?brand_redir=104958162837), and that URL also gives the correct company ID for Google.
Very interesting, thanks for the comment! So you cannot even view the page for Google since you are always redirected to the page for GoogleNederland. I imagine it’s the same if you go to https://www.facebook.com/104958162837?
When I try https://www.facebook.com/GoogleNederland, I am redirected to https://www.facebook.com/Google/?brand_redir=1706481409613475 – this number should be the ID for GoogleNederland.
What exactly do you do with the company ID? It isn’t outlined in your instructions. Thank you!

I came by this post via paired sourcing’s youtube channel, so shout out to those guys. Great tip, thank you for sharing! I was tinkering around with this to see if I could get it to work for schools – I’m not smart enough to figure it out – any ideas?
I just like the valuable information you provide on your articles.
I’ll bookmark your blog and check again here frequently.
I am reasonably sure I will be informed many new stuff proper here!
Best of luck for the following!
Wohh precisely what I was searching for, appreciate it for posting.
It appears the company employee search on Facebook no longer works as shown here, https://www.facebook.com/search/125301867524712/employees. When you attempt the search with this string you get the following: “This page isn’t available
The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed.”
Correct. Facebook Graph search is no longer working. See this post: https://booleanstrings.com/2019/06/10/bye-facebook-graph-search/
Is there now any workable alternative to searching for people by title on Facebook?
