Most social networks have a mechanism that makes it easy to export all your status updates and photos, but it is not always easy to figure out how to do this. And you have to separately to it for each social network.
If you are looking for a simpler way to get the most of your data from the social networks, look to Social Safe. This desktop program is designed to backup your social data on your own PC and you can even protect your data with a password.
With Safe Social, you can get data your data from up to four social network accounts for free. If you have more than four social accounts you want to backup, you must pay $7 a year, but most people have enough on the free version.
Adding accounts to Social Safe is fairly simple. When the program is loaded for the first time, you get the option to add accounts from Facebook, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, and more.
Click on the social networks you want to add. You will be asked whether you want to log into these accounts through the website of each service. This means that you do not have your login data transferred to Safe Social, and signing in with two-step authentication is no problem.
Once you are logged into your account, Social Safe will start downloading your data. How long this takes depends on how much you have shared online. If the initial download has been completed, Social Safe will check your accounts regularly for new items that need to be backed up to your PC.
You can view all your data directly via Social deposit box, or you can export your data to a folder on your PC. Safe Social exported data is very rough, in contrast to the neatly packaged HTML formats you get when your backups are downloading directly from Facebook or Twitter. In any case, it is good to know that there is an export option.
