Facebook download archive alternative? It fails every time now

Recommended Posts

The last time I was able to download a Facebook Archive was early January.

Every time afterwards, I either can't get it to even state it is pending. But, if it does go pending then, I get an email hours later telling me it failed.

I am trying an alternative called SocialSafe which I really like - BUT - it cannot retrieve all of my data. As a test, I selected my birthday 2011 to search for the known entries. They are still on Facebook, but SocialSafe cannot get at ALL of them. The people at SocialSafe say it's a glitch on Facebook's end where they allow third party apps to retrieve information.

By the way, SocialSafe support is very good.

As I said, I really like the app and how it presents the data. It's not just screen scraping. You can search several different ways - comments, likes, photos, captions, and more.

But, since it cannot capture all of my history, it's not totally useful. Probably OK from here forward, though, as long as I continue with daily syncs.

I did try a Mozilla add-on which I thought was not useful at all. That was a screen scraper and you had to navigate through just as you would on Facebook. Like I said, SocialSafe is really cool.

Is there anything else out there like SocialSafe that is able to retrieve all of my data? I've looked and cannot find anything.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. Hopefully you can come up with something.

      Hello,
      I used one of your How To tutorials to link my google+ page with my Facebook and twitter pages, and it's working great!
      I am having one small problem though - when I post something through google+ and it appears on Facebook, the picture associated with the post isn't my profile picture from either Facebook or Google+. It's a picture of a website logo: active.com.
      I have used active to sign up for cross county running races before, but I don't know why it would be the picture that pulls up when I am posting stuff. It only appears when I check my status updates from my phone. When I log into a computer, the picture shows up correctly.
      Because this is such a specific question, I couldn't find any help topics on it and I'm hoping you can help me!
      Thanks

      I know most people find the Facebook ticker aggravating, but I like it because I see some 'likes' etc that I cannot find on that person's page. Don't know why. Sometimes I notice something whizzing by and it looks interesting, but can't find it again. And, it takes SOOOOOOOOOO long to scroll through the ticker.
      My question is, how can you search the ticker?
      Thanks
