How to Save Your Facebook Statuses

Jan 7, 2010

Every since I wrote the post about saving my Facebook statuses, to make up a "modern day diary," I get numerous emails each day on how I did it.

To make it easy for everyone, I'm going to tell you here.

1.  Go into your Facebook account and search for "My Year in Status."

2.  Once you locate that application, begin the process it takes you through.

3.  At Step 3, it will say, on the right, "Choose Different Statuses."  Click on that.  All of your statuses from 2009 will come up. (The bummer is that, if your status was more than a certain number of characters, it cuts it off and you won't get the end of what you wrote.)

4.  Copy the entire list and paste it into a Word document.  This takes awhile.  Word doesn't like it and all the symbols it has in it.

5.  Save your document to enjoy for years to come!

Thanks so much! I'm so glad you get "stuff" from it. My goal is to help other people out and give everyone some new ideas! :-)

My Year in Status is not that good... it only retrieves statuses that are less than oneyear old not all of them! :(
besides, it doesnt tell you which day each was posted....

My Year in Status isn't working as well this year, but I found a new way to save your statuses. I'll do a post on it soon!

The Facebook app called "My Status History" will take you to a list of all your status updates.
