  6. This is an awesome find! We run a tremendous amount of contests and giveaways on our Facebook Page and looking back to find winners, etc. can be a process that no one enjoys. Hello Archivebook.

  7. This is a great app but you can do the same thing by going to 'Account settings' and then 'Download your information'. It sends you an archive of everything you've ever uploaded to facebook: statuses, comments, photos, the lot!

  11. it doesn't go back to the very beginning. if you have a long post it doesn't show the entire post. and it only showed comments going back a month or so on my wall. but i did see some of my statuses from a couple of years ago. was expecting more but i guess this was all technology could do

  12. I am trying to find an old post on a Business page…how do I find that….?

  13. Archviedbook doesn't go all the way back to 2007. I joined facebook on June 22, 2007 and want to get that far back. Is there anymore options.

  14. I'm one of those stupid sentimental people who won't delete any of these old statuses or comments due to embarrassment cause they all hold so many beautiful memories. Oh my gosh, thanks for posting this! Endless entertainment :') Sometimes I wish I could go back in time…

  15. This app will let you perform a text search for your old photo albums, videos, notes, status posts and events!

  16. This app is exactly what I’ve been looking for. It’s not the leanest, meanest, most accessible database imaginable, but it is still %$#@ing phenomenal.
