Backup Facebook Profile with SocialSafe
Most of us are addicted to online social networks like Facebook, Orkut, Hi5 etc. and for some managing an online social profile is now more important than keeping up with the one in real life.
Since no web service is infallible, you never know when your account might get hacked, deleted, suspended for false spamming or anything like that where you may lose important data, friends, uploaded photos etc.
We have already shared how you can backup your Twitter profile (followers), but there was no way to backup Facebook profile, until today, when I came across the perfect tool to backup your Facebook profile.
SocialSafe is a backup tool for Facebook which allowws you to download your Facebook friends, photo albums,Â photos you are tagged in and all your profile info to view them offline or just make a backup.
We, at Sizzled Core, have always reviewed and shared free applications and tools which are always helpful and doesn’t even cost a penny from your pockets. SocialSafe isn’t free, but I think it’s a must-buy application for hardcore Facebook users having many friends and popular profiles and I think $2.99 is not a big price the application is asking for.
- Download all your photo albums and photos you’re tagged in.
- Backup your friends and profile info.
- View and browse your Facebook profile offline.
- Let friends know that you’ve downloaded the photos.
This Adobe AIR-based application is really simple to use, and it’s one license can let you use this application on two machines. Since SocialSafe has just released, there is lots of room for new features to be added. For now, your Wall Posts in Facebook are not backed up, but in the next versions that feature will also be added. Another feature I’m looking forward to is the backup of your private messages. I hope they add that soon.
Where is the backup stored?
If you’re wondering where your backup gets stored on your computer, a quick view in the FAQs page found me the path for stored backup location in Windows and Mac.
- Windows: C:\Documents and Settings[USER_NAME]\Application Data\com.1minus1.SocialSafeXXXXXXXXX\Local Store\
- Mac: /Users/[USER_NAME]/Library/Preferences/ com.1minus1.SocialSafeXXXXXXXXX/Local Store
SocialSafe is available for both, Windows (XP, Vista, 7) and Mac OS X (Leopard and Tiger). The first 10,000 copies of SocialSafe are being sold for just $2.99, so I’d suggest you to better hurry up! Payments are done via PayPal.
If you have already purchased a license, this application can be downloaded from here: Download SocialSafe.
