GETTING OFF FACEBOOK

Do you ever wish you’d saved a copy of your most brilliant remarks on Facebook? Who doesn’t? What wit, what style, what delicate subtlety. Or maybe not. Anyway, all that stuff is still there — as well as every photo and video you ever posted.

To get to your Facebook closet, click the drop-down arrow next to “Home” and choose “Account Settings.” In the “General” tab, choose “Download a copy of your Facebook data.” How much time this takes depends on how prolix and shutter-happy you’ve been. But unlike our own real closets, it will all be organized for you, making it easy to upload to still more social sites and share with new friends. The only thing missing were the comments we posted in a members-only group. If you’re in a closed group, the comments aren’t downloadable.
