Downloading a Facebook page as evidence

Downloading a Facebook page as evidence

December 11, 2016

Social media is increasingly used as evidence in litigation.  Note that Facebook providers its users with a way to download a copy of their pages.   Go to the right of the global icon and the right of privacy shortcut icon and click on the drop down icon.   Then select 'Settings'. 


 . . . then click on the 'Download a copy of your Facebook data.' link at the bottom.  You'll be taken to a page entitled 'Download Your Information'.   Click on the green button 'Download Archive'.    When the download completes you'll be emailed a link to a zip with an archive containing html files, and all of the images and videos you have uploaded to Facebook.
