Is there a way to view a listing of old posts to my Facebook wall? I've been using Facebook for a number of years, and I have accumulated hundreds of postings on my wall. How long are those posts stored on Facebook's servers, and how can I look at the old ones?

I know you can click the link "view older posts", but that only takes you back one page a time, and to get to the really old posts would take hours that way.

You can find old posts using keyword search or time-frame search by using Search For Posts facebook app:

If you don't want to leave Facebook, here's the Facebook App I made a while ago: https://apps.facebook.com/searchmyposts/

Facebook Search My Posts allows you to search through everything you ever posted on your Facebook wall.

With the new Facebook Timeline, this has become easier to do allowing one to browse posts by year and month.

I'm sorry but this isn't helpful since the Timeline feature is not live yet. –  Tony R Dec 7 '11 at 16:21
    
@TonyR Timeline is available in New Zealand and to Facebook Developers and to 1M or so users who signed up as developers as early access. –  phwd Dec 10 '11 at 1:32
    
A-ha that explains it. Thanks for clarifying! –  Tony R Dec 12 '11 at 20:47
