I know it's possible to download a copy of my Facebook data, but many comments made on discussion threads are quite irrelevant without the proper context of the discussion.

I'm wondering if there is a way to download a copy of all comments posted by anyone on every item to which I also posted a comment on (preferably including the amount of likes on each of the comments, and even further the indentity of the persons who liked them, though that is mostly irrelevant)

After all, I do have access to seeing that same data via the normal Facebook UI. But I would also like to keep a private copy of it for future reference.

EDIT: clarified to refer to dowloading all discussion threads

The only way I'm aware of is a screenshot. – slybloty Oct 30 '13 at 14:06

The easiest way of doing this that I can think of is to open the page in chrome and save it as PDF that way you have a record of the conversation and its also searchable. If you dont use chrome you could also use a pdf conversion tool like PrimoPDF

Sorry, my question was a bit unclear - I would want a copy of all of the discussions I've participated in. I edited the question to make this more clear. – Ilari Kajaste Oct 30 '13 at 22:38
