Guide: How To Use IFTTT to Back­up Sta­tus Updates and Pho­tos from Face­book to Google Dri­ve

If you have a Facebook page, you post a lot of stuff on it. Status updates, special hashtag based promotions and photos, lots of photos. An active Facebook user posts several times a day. It’s not uncommon to see 4-5 posts from your favorite page every day.

Looking at this from the perspective of the content creator, that’s a lot. Things fans are likely to forget. Things you are likely to recycle (as with anything on the web). In times like these, it can be helpful to keep a log of all the things you’ve posted to Facebook.

Now of course you can do this the old-fashioned way: manually copy the image you uploaded to a folder on your local drive or Dropbox / Google Drive. Or add the textual update to a long document, along with the date. But why bother when you can automate this whole process in minutes?

Today we use IFTTT to link a Facebook page to Google Drive or Dropbox. I’ll get you through it how to create two custom recipes for adding status updates to a document and backing upup up all photos you upload to the Facebook page to a folder in Google Drive or Dropbox.

First, enable Facebook Pages, Google Drive and Dropbox channels

Heads up If you don’t know about IFTTT (if it is), check out our walkthrough here. It’s a great way to automate web actions.

Once you are drawn up for IFTTT, you need to activate the Facebook Pages, Google Drive and Dropbox channels by logging into those accounts and verifying them.

When you enable the Facebook Pages channel, you will be asked to choose the default Facebook page that you manage. At the moment you can only choose one Facebook page. So if you want to do this for multiple Facebook pages, you have to create multiple IFTTT accounts.

Now let’s make those recipes.

Add Facebook page status updates to a document in Google Drive or Dropbox

Visit this page to get started.

Step 1: Click on This button to specify the source action and search for Facebook pages in the channel list.

Step 1

Step 2: You must now select a trigger. Choose the option New status message on page.

Step 2

Step 3: Click Create Trigger.

Step 4: Now click the Then button button and search for the cloud storage service of your choice. You can do this for Google Drive or Dropbox. In this example I’m going with Google Drive.

Step 4

Step 5: Now we have to choose an action. Since we want to create one long document with all of our status updates (you really don’t want one file for every status), choose Add to a document. If you went with Dropbox, the option is Add to a text file.

Step 5 Add

Step 6: IFTTT now shows you fields for the document name, content and path where it is saved. If you want to change what the document is named or where it is stored in Google Drive, make the appropriate changes.

Step 6 Add

Step 7: Edit the recipe title if desired, turn off notifications, click Create Recipe and you’re done.

Step 7 Drive1

Now every status update on your Facebook page will be added to the document you created along with the date and time stamp.

How to go back automatically Up Photos uploaded to a Facebook page to Google Drive or Dropbox

Many of the steps in making this recipe are the same as above. So I’m just emphasizing what’s different.

Step 2: In the Trigger, select Upload new photo to a page.

Step 5: Choose the Upload file from URL action.

Step 6: Choose the folder where you want to save all images and click Create action.

Why Google Drive and not Dropbox?

The reason why I chose Google Drive in the examples above (which is what I use in real life for this type of activity) is that Google Drive has Docs. The document in which all status messages are stored will be placed on the Internet, easily accessible from anywhere and you can also share it with your colleagues.

Moreover, Google Drive gives you 15 GB of free space instead of the 2 GB with Dropbox. So if you upload a lot of images to your Facebook page, that extra storage can really come in handy.
