I have thousand+ Wall posts, Messages, Chat conversations, Status update, Photos and videos shared on Facebook. So what do I do when I want a backup of each and every thing I’ve ever posted?
Did you know that Facebook can help you out with that? Not many are aware of this Facebook feature or they must have decided to just ignore it.
