Press for Backupify

Now that Facebook has made it easy to download the data you've entered on the site, what about the other social networks into which you pump photos, status updates, and messages to your friends? How can you download your stuff on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Flickr? Not all of them make it easy to get out what you put in. Here are the best ways to export and archive your social media life on the most popular networks.

Imagine if your Facebook account were suspended and deleted.  What would you do if your entire LinkedIn network suddenly disappeared?  If your Flickr photos were no longer accessible or if Twitter crashed yet again, only this time for good?

Backupify, the leading provider of online backup, archiving and export services for cloud-based social media and SaaS data, today announced that it has secured $4.5 Million in Series A funding co-led by Avalon Ventures and General Catalyst, with additional participation fromLowercase Capital and First Round Capital. This round of investment will enable Backupify to accelerate its product development capabilities while expanding its focus on data management services that target the increasing amount of data that enterprises store in cloud-based applications.

Working on the theory that people don't want to lose their stuff, disaster recovery (DR) specialist Continuity Centers has launched a 'cloud backup' service called MobileVault that the firm says will be "enterprise-class backup at SOHO prices." The service is aimed at everyone, from individuals to larger businesses, and there is no price listed on their website, naturally.
