I was hoping for some insight as to how I should go about getting my Fan Page friend count to display on my Drupal driven site.

Are there any good tuts out there?

Any help would do

Mind you I have the Drupal for Facebook module installed. So this is what I did:

function facebook_count($username) {
$url = "https://graph.facebook.com/".$username;
$fbData = json_decode( file_get_contents( $url, 0, null, null ), true );
return intval($fbData['likes']);

I then displayed it via:

<?php echo number_format(facebook_count('Fan_Page_ID') ); ?>

Hope this helps!


It's a non-drupal thing. When you login in your facebook fan page, you find instructions to style and get copy n' paste Javascript/iframe code to put a "fan box" or a "like box" in your web pages: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box/

  • Well I understand that. What I am looking to display on my site is just a count of friends that I have or likes to my fan page.
