Would like a QR code to open a specific page in the Facebook app on your phone.

Just feed the url into a qr code generator. The phone that scans it should either offer to launch the facebook app or launch the website and then give you the option to launch the app.

There may be a protocol handler for facebook like "tel:" and "skype:" but I'm not sure (try fbook: and facebook: )
Not everybody installs the app, so a plain url is more universal.

There's always: https://developers.facebook.com/t...t-browser/

I tried this and I can only get it to load the website. I found some old (2012) guides that say the correct protocol is fb://[profileURL] but this just opens my Facebook feed when I put in a custom page URL

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone
