Topic: Capturing Facebook
In 2020 Facebook converted all users over to its new layout, called New Facebook. This page summarizes the impacts this is having on Facebook captures with Page Vault and our current options for making Facebook captures.

A full walkthrough of the feature, including a demo video, can be found on the Post-by-Post knowledge base page.
If you would like to have access to the beta, please contact our support team to get trained and have the feature enabled on your account.
Facebook has introduced a modified version of an old feature to jump to a date on an individual's timeline, which we're calling "Filter by Date."
