How can I download my facebook chat history?

by rabbitt1995 / September 22, 2011 7:54 PM PDT

I would like to download my facebook chat/message history from a few of my friends. With some it's over 20000 messages long, and I'd prefer not to scroll for that long to get it all and do a copy and paste. Is there a way to export it all somehow? Thanks.

Not sure it's going to be possible

But there seems to be apps available for saving chat history, 'from the time you install the app'.

Try YouTube and search for "How to view, save and download your facebook chat history" or similar.
