Ever tried going through your old status messages? Try it, it’s fun and needless to say you will feel nostalgic. One problem with Facebook is that it doesn’t let user get a list of all his updates unlike Twitter. To see your old status updates, either you have to click “Older Posts” on your wall or see for E-mails sent to you by Facebook, both of which are cumbersome and practically impractical. But of course there is another way (why would I write this post anyway?). The way is known as “Dolting” and requires you to use an application on Facebook called My Status History. It gives you a list of all your status updates which are still on Facebook servers in a simple chronological manner. It shows you your first name and the status update with the time and date of the update written in brackets “()”. An example:
Pulkit Mom: “Do it right now! Tomorrow never comes”
Me: I hope you are right. I hope tomorrow never comes.

Pulkit To all those who say that the iPad sucks. Trust me, it doesn’t suck. I would have bought it if it could even suck properly but unfortunately, it cannot even suck. (Sat, 17 Jul 2010 13:10:10 GMT)
As seen above, the application also follows WYSIWYG so paragraphs are recognized. The application also gives to the option of seeing your status updates either in the order “newest to oldest” or oldest to newest”. To get a list, head over to the application by click for here for My Status History You will see a list of all your status updates right their! Easy Peasy!
Now either copy paste you status updates for a backup or just go through them to realise how much life has changed 🙂
