Meet Recollect: A Great Tool That Archives All Your Online Data


Social networks have become part of lots of people’s lives. And it’s not just about having a profile for heavy users, users now constantly share posts, pictures, tweets, check-ins, comments and files across all the popular social platforms.  But the general problem is how to find information and data we shared in the past, how much more to keep an archive of the data.

Well meet Recollect, a great tool that seeks to solve archive all your past information you have shared on your social profiles. The tool may  not be for everybody but what if you loose all your Instagram, Flickr, Facebook photos and even all your posts on major platforms.

Recollect collects and archives all of your data, for all time. And you can download it to your computer, any time you want.  Everything you’ve created from your favorite online services — Twitter, Foursquare, Flickr, and Instagram – can be synced to your personal archive.

Users can back up their Foursquare check-ins, tweets, and photos from Instagram and Flickr as well as the corresponding conversation around those items, including comments and likes. You can search your tweets, Foursquare check-ins, Instagrams & Flickr photos, at the same time. Recollect organizes your posts in chronological order to save you the time to scroll endlessly backwards on Twitter or Instagram to find older updates.

Recollect supports Flickr, Instagram, Twitter and Foursquare and offers plans depending upon how many photos users want to archive. The cheapest option is $6 a month for 5,000 archived photos, monthly downloads, and one account per website.

The tool, still in beta is focused on just the four social networks mentioned above with the ability to archive posts, download data, browse through the archive and search for specific keywords. Recollect is free for thirty days, fully featured, no restrictions.

Recollect was launched by three former Flickr employees (Chris Martin, Bertrand Fan, and Timoni West)
