How to see backed up accounts from your Twitter or Facebook

As I currently see, Backupify seems to doesn’t support restoring your data. But it allows you to browse the backed up history. For example, I use Backupify for my Twitter account, so when I login I go to the Archives section and click my Twitter account name. Now I will see the list with all my Twitter status updates, messages and other activities. All this data can be exported to the PDF also. The history section provides some statistics about archived items.

Backupify is interesting service which will allow you to backup your important data from all the social networks you use. The lack of restoring options is not the problem of the Backupify directly, I think. You couldn’t post hundreds or thousands posts to the Twitter or Facebook. But Backupify gives you possibility to browse the archive of all your posts. Give it a try.
