Raw FBID of inferred topics. These are usually pages.

Topics are individual items in the Facebook social graph. A topic can be referred to with a FBID (Facebook id). Please refer to Namespace Families for further information.

Hint: to find the FBID for a page or topic you can use the Facebook Graph API Explorer. Take a look at our guide on Discovering Topics to learn more.

Topic information is deduced by Facebook's natural language processing algorithms. Facebook automatically infers topics that a story is likely to be referring to. For example, if a story mentions 'Countach', 'Sesto Elemento', and 'Aventador', it is reasonable to infer that the author is discussing Lamborghini supercars so Facebook makes information from that manufacturer's Facebook page available for filtering and data delivery.

This target is populated whenever Facebook infers a topic. The fb.topics.name target contains the name of the topic rather than its id. Note that fb.topics.name is populated for the several million most common topics but not for all topics. Thus, we recommend that you filter on fb.topic_ids if a filter for fb.topics.name does not find all the results you expect.
