As we reported it on a previous news, Facebook is planning to remove the Discussion Boards app from all Facebook pages on October 31th, including all previous discussions, topics and messages. Fortunately, a small Irish company, Pixode Ltd, has released a new application, called Forum for pages for Facebook, providing a basic forum software for this social network AND allowing you to migrate your data from the old Discussion Board app to this one.
If you want to see it right now, our Facebook page was migrated to this new application.
Here is how to backup and keep a forum on your own Facebook page:
Note that the P&O Cruises Australia company was able to save more than 4000 discussions using this solution, so it looks very stable and functional. By the way, do not wait too long, because this trick will not work anymore after the 1st of November 2011, where this old Bulletin Boards application will be removed!
