How to Back Up Your Facebook Data

~ Posted on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 9:18 AM ~

In case some of you didn't noticed, Facebook was down for over half hour yesterday (27th January 2015 for us Malaysians). Apparently Instagram was down at the same time too. I noticed because I was busy stalking all the good deals posted on this preloved group on Facebook and wanted to send a private message to one of the seller and all of a sudden my Facebook page just hangs. I can still go to Google and other websites but not Facebook. Just hours after that, I started getting articles on Facebook and Instagram being down and etc. There is also article guiding us on how to backup our Facebook data just in case of social network meltdown. That reminded me on what I said to my sister in law 2 days ago as I was guiding her on how to create Facebook page and I mentioned something about not being in control of your Facebook data if Facebook suddenly make some changes to its policy.

Anyway, long story short, I thought of making a tutorial on how to backup your Facebook data as well. So here it goes:

* Go to the top right of your page, look for the drop-down arrow, click on it and click on 'Settings'.

* You can see the option to 'Download a copy of your Facebook data'. Click on it.

* Click on 'Start My Archive'. You will be prompted with a screen to key in your Facebook password.

* You will see the screen below. Click on 'Start My Archive'.

* You will then see the screen below informing you that an email will be to your email address when your data is ready for download.

* The email you received from Facebook will look like the following. Just click on the link provided in order to start your download process.

* You will see the following screen informing you that your data is ready to be downloaded. Click on 'Download Archive' button.

* You will be prompted again with a screen to key in your Facebook password.

* You will see a window prompt as below. Click 'OK' to save the file. Your downloaded file will be stored in the default location for your downloaded items.

* Your downloaded data will be in zipped file format - separated into different folders for html, photos and videos with an index file.

I hope this article serves to help you in planning out how to backup your data in your Facebook profile!

Let's Learn Bahasa & Cantonese - Thank You!

~ Posted on Monday, January 26, 2015 at 8:13 AM ~

Ever since I started kindergarten at 6 years old, I have been attending public schools (main language is Bahasa Malaysia) and during my earlier years, I mixed around with a lot of Malay friends and even spoke Bahasa with my elder brother at home (he also attends public schools), even to this day. So Bahasa Malaysia used to be my main language other than Cantonese and later on English (brushed up more when I met my hubby then boyfriend through snail mails, I had to practise and brush up my English as he doesn't speak Cantonese) Anyway, I think it is fun to be able to practise back and sharing what I know with those of you who are interested.

And so, here goes our next lesson: THANK YOU!

For those of you who are more often on Facebook, you can also find the tutorials on my Facebook fan page. I have created a "Let's Learn Bahasa & Cantonese!" album to store the phrases. Enjoy learning!

I'm a full-time mummy Secret Group

~ Posted on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 6:33 AM ~

Attention all followers,

I have created a group (will be set to secret soon) as frankly, I'm tired of putting disclaimers on each and every real-life stories on my Facebook page just because some people are sensitive over certain topics or do not like to read articles that are negative/scary/abuses/death/tragedies etc. There will not be any disclaimers on articles shared in this secret group.

So, if you say yes to all the following criteria, hop over to my secret group (link below) and click to join. Only join if you are OK with the following criteria:

* Tired of reading disclaimers

* Agree that parenting and/or real life is not just rainbow and butterflies and unicorns etc and would like to find out as much as what is happening across the world to be better informed

* Agree that everyone has different cultures, beliefs, styles.

* You don't feel agitated seeing articles with typo, grammar, etc

* Want to be able to share your feedback and thoughts without the fear of being trolled or bashed on your opinions

* Want to be able to search through previous postings (you can't do it on FB pages)

* Want to be a part of a global community that looks beyond race, religion, countries, gender, etc etc.

* Want to be able to post questions or share things on the wall (but need my approval first)

* For bloggers, I also share the occasional review pitches I get.

Do note that I have the right to be choosy and picky over who can joined my group as I want to keep it small as well so if you don't hear from me, you can still stay on my Facebook page and continue reading whatever I shared on it. The link to find my secret group on FB is as follow:
