Quick. Name all the people that you’re friends with on Facebook.

You’ve got two minutes…

Time’s up. 
Well could you do it?  No?  Oh no!   Because all of that work you put into making your Facebook page the masterpiece that it is, can be gone in an instant.  Not just yours, but anyone’s.  That’s because Facebook is a web site with millions of users and billions of entries.  As hard as they try to maintain it and keep all of your uploads and pictures and information safe, all of it is just one electronic hiccup or hacked account away from disappearing.   In an instant.

Just follow the instructions below and all of the information on your Timeline will be safe and secure right on your personal computer or portable hard drive.
