Imagine this scenario: You’ve spent months building up a substantial fan base on your business’s Facebook page, engagement levels are high, you’ve got lots of great content, photos and videos, and your page is sending lots of traffic to your website. Sounds fantastic doesn’t it? Now imagine that over night, you lose all the information on your Facebook page – an absolute disaster!
Because it’s the mighty Facebook, we tend to forget that we can lose the valuable information we’ve worked so hard on. A hacker, a user error, viruses, data corruption or sabotage are just some of the possible causes which can lead to a total loss of the information on your Facebook page.
Well, the other day I stumbled upon a solution which could save you from losing all your Facebook page data… introducing Backupify!
Backupify is a leading backup provider for cloud based data. This fantastic solution offers complete backup services for the most popular online services including Facebook, Twitter, Gmail and more…
