Back Up Your Facebook Profile with SOS Social Backup.

If you’re like most Facebook users, you have updated, uploaded, and shared important media and content. Should anything happen to the security of your Facebook account — or even Facebook itself — you will undoubtedly want a backup containing all of your information.

A new app from SOS Online Backup, called SOS Social Backup, allows Facebook users to back up their data right from Facebook, which will include wall posts, messages, information about your friends, and your photo albums. The backup is free, and users can choose what data to back up — perfect for users who are primarily concerned about the availability of uploaded photos that may no longer exist on a desktop. You can also use SOS Social Backup to restore your profile from a previous version, useful in the event your account is compromised and then recovered, as well as see what your profile looked like during a backup point. Users of SOS Social Backup can also convert friends’ information into .vcf Outlook contact files.

The app works for for both personal and brand pages, so social media managers can use the app to download backups containing data, including wall posts, which may be useful in supporting the continued use of social media as part of a marketing campaign. According to All Facebook, SOS Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ken Shaw says that added support for Gmail and Twitter will be included in SOS Social Backup soon.

SOS Social Backup is a great option for social media users who want to save their data in case of a need for recovery or restoration. The service joins other social backup services, including Backupify, which not only offers a backup of Facebook but also Gmail, Twitter, LinkedIn, Picasa, and more.
