Differentiate between Facebook user and event ID

How can I detect programmatically wether a Facebook ID user over event ID is? Are there any intervals where ID come from? I.e. 10211282278486891 is my user ID, and 1774156412659580 is an event ID. Looking for a fast way, without any web service call.

Search for fields specific for the user - for example, there is no "first_name" field in an event and you do not need extra permission to get that field.

/id?fields=first_name

Another solution that is probably better:

/id?metadata=1

With that API call, you get a "type" field that tells you if it´s a user profile or event.

You need to login account before you can post.
