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.


Try ArchivedBook

Archivedbook is a great way to review your Facebook profile's history!

  • View all the old wall messages from your Facebook friends.
  • View all your old status updates.
  • Check how many likes and comments got posted on your profile since the last 30 days.
  • ...and you can also view the same data about your friends!

  • Looks like it no longer works. – Trevor Hartman Feb 24 '11 at 21:48
  • As far as I can tell, it doesn't allow searching – Casebash Jun 20 '14 at 12:32

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

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.
