Getting ready for the exodus: http://www.quitfacebookday.com/
Seems every time I want to save a list of friends my Facebook “friends” I have to find a different way. Since my last attempt in January: Facebook friends backup they moved things around again.
You need to be logged in to Facebook for this to work.
Run this query:
SELECT uid, first_name, last_name, name, birthday_date, sex, hometown_location, current_location, profile_url, profile_blurb, username, website FROM user WHERE uid IN (SELECT uid2 FROM friend WHERE uid1 = 638122456)
Change uid1 to your Facebook ID.. which you can find in the URL when you use Facebook.
You’ll end up with some JSON output text.
Copy, paste, save.
There are obviously better ways, but this is the 2min hack. No, you can’t extract your friend’s email address.. why? Because Facebook is evil remember.
Maybe somebody wants to write us some php to do a better backup.
