How to save your Facebook Profile, Photos, Videos, Messages, etc.
You might have asked yourself, “How do I save my Facebook Photos, Videos, and Messages?”. I’ve put together a tutorial to show you how to save everything you’ve put on Facebook and download it in one compressed file.
Facebook has some amazing changes rolling out next week and one of the biggest changes is the Timeline profile. I won’t cover any details about the Facebook Timeline because there are already some many posts available across the internet about that topic.
Start compressing your Facebook content
The first step is to initiate the compression of your Facebook content by going to your Account Settings page. Click on the down-arrow and select Account Settings. Click on the “Download a copy of your Facebook data” link.
Start the Download
You’ll be directed to the Start Download Archive page of your account where you’ll see information about the content that will be downloaded and what wont be downloaded. Review the details and click Start My Archive.
Download Archive Pending
The status is pending while the data is compressed. Depending on how much content, video, photos, etc you have on your account will determine the amount of time it takes to compress.
Archive Finished Compressing, Download
Once your Facebook data has been compressed you can click on the Download Archive button. Before you begin your download, make sure you have plenty of storage space on your hard drive. My archive was over 1GB.
Re-enter Your Password
Before you can start the download, you will be asked to re-enter your Facebook password. This is to protect your content from anyone how may have found access to your account, i.e. left logged in at the library.
