I need to save a topic on Facebook. The page contains a very offensive topic, which the author has deleted, when he realized he could be prosecuted.

I tried:

GOOGLE
404. Thats an error.
The requested URL /search?q="MY FACEBOOK URL CONTAINING THE MENTIONED TOPIC"
was not found on this server.
That’s all we know.

How can I open a cached version of that page in order to save it for legal purposes?

  • Not everything is visible to Google, so not everything will have a cache. If the page has privacy settings or wasn't up for long enough, there may be no cache. Take a screenshot? – jam Mar 27 '13 at 16:15
  • Also, IANAL but something on facebook being 'offensive' probably isn't enough to sue someone unless it's directly libellous, I would think. – jam Mar 27 '13 at 16:17
  • How about a print screen? – Alex Oct 16 '13 at 8:17
  • @Alex, print screen isn't enough in legal cases since it could be just an edited image. – Darkeden Oct 22 '13 at 16:29

The only correct way to retrieve any data from Facebook with respect to law activity is via https://www.facebook.com/safety/groups/law/guidelines/

Cached Google files should only work for Facebook pages that are logged out.

So only pages like

  • cache:facebook.com
  • https://web.archive.org/web/*/facebook.com

Specifically after that, only public Facebook fan pages can retrieve data. Facebook personal profiles should not be showing feed posts logged out.

You can try using an application that can view your cache files:
