Image from store Backstory: Remember Your Facebook Friends!
Description from store ★ Add private labels and notes in Facebook profiles. ★ Copy notes in from public info. ★ Search through your notes, e.g. to find all friends tagged with a certain place. ★ Sync and back up across multiple devices. ★ Free, lightweight personal CRM for Facebook. Featured on Product Hunt! https://www.producthunt.com/posts/backstory-for-facebook Q: Will my friends know what I write about them? A: No! Only you can see the labels and notes you've written. Q: Where are my notes stored? A: For your privacy and security, your data is stored offline on your own computer by default. If you choose to create an online backup, your data is backed up to our servers so you can sync it across multiple devices. Q: What does syncing do? Syncing keeps your notes up-to-date between multiple devices. Changes on one device will be sent to all other devices signed in to the same backup. You can also transfer your notes to a new device by signing in to your backup on it. Q: Do you collect data on my friends or my Facebook activity? A: We do not store any information besides your notes, labels, and friends' names. Q: It says that you can "read and change my data on www.facebook.com". What gives? A: We need to detect whose Facebook profile you are viewing and load their corresponding labels and notes. Hence, this is a Chrome permission allowing us to do that.

  • (2019-08-07) Christoph Gundacker: Awesome! Thanks! Have been searching for something like this for AGES and was thinking of making a feature like this myself. Luckily I found your App before starting DEV. Great Job! +++ Don't understand why facebook won't add this themselves.
  • (2018-06-10) Tan Nguyen: thanks to this app I can organize my facebook friends effectively
  • (2017-11-21) TheProtean Girl: I LOVE THIS APP. Thank you so much. The one thing to add is the capacity to search more than one thing at once. Say 2 tags or a tag and a note together and more like 3 or 4 or 5 ... items
  • (2017-01-20) Wen Rui Liau: Adds a great personal touch to your Facebook friends and great for remembering little trivial about them too! Facebook please remember to credit the creator when you (eventually) add this as a permanent feature.
  • (2017-01-19) Yunru Phua: Not sure why Facebook never created this feature, because it is such a NECESSITY for every Facebook user! With over 1200+ friends, I'll never have to agonize over how I met this Facebook friend with an unfamiliar profile pic again. 11/10 recommend.

    My hard disc died and I was able do recover the data and copy to admin library folder, but your data doesn't show up in Chrome, so all my notes are gone. I didn't create an account with you.

  • (2019-07-09, v: Fabio Vescarelli: Backstory for non-friends users
    Hello, it would be very useful for us to be able to use your extensions with non-friend members of a FB group we own. Is it possible? Thank you F.

    It is appearing on Chrome but it is not showing up on Facebook pages. I have restarted the computer but it's still missing. Help?
  • (2018-08-23, v: Boris Popovich: Syncing on Mac
    I installed this extension on my Mac Pro and Macbook Pro, but it is not syncing. Chrome sync is on on both computers. What do I have to do in order to sync this extension and see my notes on all my computers?
  • (2018-07-20, v: Lisa Guarasci: Sync account across devices
    Can I sync WhoDat across devices, like my laptop and desk top. When I add tags and notes on my desktop they are not there on the desktop .
  • (2018-06-16, v: Bitte fügen Sie eine Möglichkeit zum Sichern und Wiederherstellen hinzu?
    Können Sie bitte eine Möglichkeit zum Sichern und Wiederherstellen hinzufügen? In eine CSV-Datei exportieren? Ich finde, dass die Daten nicht auf meinen Backup-Computer übertragen wurden, und ich möchte, dass sie überall dort angezeigt werden, wo ich mich an meinem Computer angemeldet habe. Könntest du vielleicht auch einen Weg finden, Leute in bestimmten Tags zu melden? Oder an alle in einem Suchergebnis? Und / Oder an meine Pinnwand posten, aber nur den Leuten im Tag erscheinen (während sie für sie teilbar bleiben). Liebe das Plugin, danke.
  • (2018-05-28, v: Please add a way to backup and restore?
    Can you please add a way to backup and restore? Export to a CSV file? I find that the data does not transfer to apply to my backup computer, and I would like it to appear wherever I am logged into my Google account as well, if possible.
