How to backup all your Facebook data

Backing up is important. Financial Backup, Health Backup (Insurance) and Digital Data Backup. Fear and Curiosity are two major factors behind all major inventions. I last a Facebook account with very limited number of friends in the times when there was happening business talks between me and CEO of a Nepalese Company. No, I am not a spammer, but perhaps facebook felt something wrong with me, I don't know. Now I am extra careful while using any social media. I know many people create fake facebook accounts, but I don't like those practices.

Very recently I got to know through a news feed that Social Media Examiner last there Facebook page with massive fan followings, though facebook restored it later, but question arises, what will happen to the trust of those followers who love reading through your news feeds. In case you lost a page or completely banned from using your facebook, how to tell people (friends, fans, followers) your whereabouts. I am still unable to find track of my valuable customers from previous account. So I do not suffer losses again, I started looking for backup methods. Here are my findings.

Learn to read

Do not read to learn. Kids go school for reading and comeback exhausted. In many higher education institutions Ph.D candidates read and compile thesis based on how much they have learnt based from reading over say 3 or 5 years or may be more sometime with grant or without grant. Often I have seen one trend the people who impress you own many books, think any name that come to your mind and check what the person read.
