Scrape your Facebook saved links

Facebook does not provide an easy way to get your saved links out of its system. Here's a quick script that does that for you.

Instructions

Go to your Saved links page and make sure you scroll way down to the bottom so that all your saved items are loaded. This script will generate a simple HTML page with your links, along with an Add to Pinboard action.

Bookmarklet

Drag this to your bookmarks toolbar: Facebook Saved Links
