Facebook friends backup

Extract your friends list from Facebook in XML.. without email addresses sadly:

Go here: http://developers.facebook.com/tools.php

Response Format == XML

Method == fql.query

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.

Copy, paste, save.

ps. FQL is also handy for things like.. let’s say you met a girl at a trance party, you know her name and that she attended an event.. but the event list is not in any useful order. Totally hypothetical.
