Hello. Just wanted to share a successful, if somewhat unconventional, conversion story.
Not too long ago Facebook activated a feature that allowed users to download a backup of their data as a zip archive. See
I reviewed the structure and contents of the facebook zip archive and it seemed pretty straightforward containing html, jpg, mp4 files, so on a lark I imported it into Calibre 0.7.53 and was able to convert it into an epub file.
The epub contained all wall posts, photos, notes, profile information and was readable on a Kobo. Of course the Kobo cannot play the video. Not sure how other devices like an iPad might be able to handle video embedded in an epub (my guess is probably not).
I tried to do this with Facebook after I failed to find a way to get my blogspot content into an epub format file. There is a for-charge service called blog2print that will create a PDF as well as a bound soft cover book.
It gave me the idea that I might be able to use the blogger export feature to generate an epub, but no luck there. Would be nice if it was possible.
