      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.

    • Raphael Pungin

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

    • Chloe

      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…

    • Bryan

      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.

      • S.Pradeep Kumar

        Yes, Bryan, they do have limitations unfortunately. But they try their best to go backward.

        • Greg

          Thanks S.Pradeek!
          Actually you might want to check the new version of Archivedbook, just released yesterday. There are some cool new features. Any feedbacks or comments are warmly welcome ๐Ÿ™‚

    • RobertB

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

    • Kristi

      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

    • Kavya Hari

    • John Cunningham

      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!

    • Extreme John

      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.
