4 Steps To Backing Up Your Facebook Profile

Creating a backup of your hard drive and all your data on a regular basis is very important, but you may not have thought about backing up your Facebook data.  Business owners should be aware that backing up your Facebook account is very important, due to the fact it is vital to to keep up-to-date records of online communications for legal reasons.

It is important to remember with reference to social networking profiles, e.g. your Facebook page, that you do not own the account and the data associated with it.

Any online account you create can be suspended or terminated by the service without warning if you are suspected of violating the site’s terms of service.

Facebook allows you to create an archive of your profile whenever you wish, from within the social networking site. You can create the archive of your profile and download it to your own computer to maintain and incorporate as part of your regular back up process. Facebook’s backup file includes an HTML page which allows you to preview all the content that is in your profile.

With these points in mind, here are four steps for how to back up your Facebook data:

1. Log in to your Facebook account.

2. Go to the drop down arrow that you will find in the top right-hand corner of your profile page and choose Account Settings.

3. Underneath the settings list you will see a hyperlink which enables you to download a copy of your Facebook data.

4. From the Download page you will see a green button that says “Start My Archive”, which will enable you to initiate the download process. Facebook will generate the download and then email you when it is ready.

The Facebook profile archive will contain posts and videos that you have shared on Facebook, wall posts, chat conversations and messages, and your friends’ names and email addresses of friends who have allowed this to happen in their account settings.
