Use Facebook Messenger More Than Texting? Here’s How To Back Up All Your Facebook Messages

UPDATE 13/02/2014 – We’ve added a short video to this blog to show you how you can download Facebook Messages with SocialSafe:

[tl:dr - To download your Facebook Messages right now then start using SocialSafe for free]

Today I came across a couple of articles that reinforced a point that has been becoming increasingly apparent lately – people are sending text messages less and less frequently, instead opting to use 3G or WiFi based messages on services such as WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.

There are several reasons why someone may do it, each as valid as the other. For me, I have a brother who lives in Singapore and we use WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger to send messages and chat in real-time for free. Some people live in areas of intermittent phone signal, but if they are connected to a WiFi network they can carry on sending messages to individuals and groups of friends, indiscriminate of the device owned by the other people (eg Apple users being able to use WiFi to send iMessages). And with Facebook sprucing up the chat interface and becoming more prominent on mobile phones – think Facebook Home and Chat Heads – it’s becoming more common to receive a Facebook message than a text for a lot of people.

This brings us to the main point. People were thrilled when Apple brought out the iCloud which allows users to automatically sync their contacts, text messages and other content to a separate backup drive just in case their iPhones were stolen, lost, or the data accidentally deleted. However, when you begin to drift away from using a communication medium that is being backed up automatically (text messages), how many of you think about keeping copies of the new messages you are sending and receiving?

If you communicate via Facebook a little or a lot, you might well be looking for a way to download all your Facebook messages. With SocialSafe, backing up your messages is quick and easy, and you’ll also be able to browse and search through your entire Facebook message history offline. Simply download the free trial and start backing up your online social life today.

After all, if your Facebook account were to bite the dust overnight (and believe us, it can happen), there isn’t anything the iCloud will be able to do to retrieve your chats with friends. Don’t take a chance with your online memories – back them up once, relive them forever.
