Facebook API user issue

Last Modified: 2015-03-09
Hi Experts,

My requirement is to get user's profile link that can be seen without logging-in into facebook...

I have user's Facebook Id saved in Database and also the link to his/her profile i.e like https://www.facebook.com/app_scoped_user_id/123456789
But when someone opens this url and that viewer is not logged-in to facebook then viewer is redirected to login page..

Is there a way I can find a users's real page url (like "https://www.facebook.com/name1.name287") based on this id : 123456789 ?

Thank you. I really need this.
