Backup Facebook Accounts

5 Ott/09

Many online services do not offer the means to backup data locally. Users who want to backup data are usually left with a tedious manual process (like downloading pictures or videos one by one). Data that cannot be downloaded right away is even harder to backup, think of contacts or private messages for example.

Archive Facebook is an add-on for the Mozilla Firefox web browser. The purpose of the add-on is to provide the tools to backup facebook accounts. The add-on can backup photos, messages, friends list, notes, events, groups, information and the activity stream. And since it is an experimental add-on it is likely that the developers will add new features to it in the future.

Here is how the add-on works:

  • An ArchiveFB entry is added to the Firefox Tools menu after installation of the add-on
  • Activate ArchiveFV > Archive from the menu after logging into a Facebook account
  • The process is automatic and can take minutes or even hours depending on the data in the account
  • A Facebook menu option is added to the ArchiveFB menu giving the user the option to view archived accounts
