Is the any way to export a Facebook chat conversation?
I have a facebook conversation in chat that is over 57500 messages long. Now I’ve discovered that scrolling all the way back up through it will take more time than it’s worth. Is there another way to get the entire conversation?

Hi, I am pretty sure that there is no other way. (My shortest answer ever)

Facebook chat is an immediate way to communicate with your Facebook friends in real time.

Facebook is a social media website that has pioneered the way Internet users communicate with each other. There are three main ways to communicate directly with other Facebook users: messages through private inboxes, public comments written on other users’ walls and status updates, and an instant-message chat. While private messages and public comments are all permanently stored to view later, Facebook doesn’t provide a native way to view the history of a chat with another user. Fortunately, there is a free add-on that allows users of the Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers to store and manage Facebook chat histories.
Things You’ll Need
Install the Facebook Chat History Manager for Firefox extension. While logged into your Facebook account, open a blank tab on the Firefox browser. Go to the download page for the Facebook Chat History Manager add-on (see Resources). Click on the “Install Extension” link at the top of that page. This will take you to the most current landing page on the Mozilla website for the Facebook Chat History Manager Add-on. Click on the “Add to Firefox” button. A pop-up window will appear. Wait for it to fully load and click on “Install Now.” Wait for the installation to finish downloading, and then click the “Restart Firefox” button in the new pop-up window. This will restart your Firefox browser, so be sure to save any other tabs you had open before clicking “Restart Firefox.”
Sync the extension to work with your Facebook account. With Firefox open, log back into Facebook if necessary and click on “Tools” in the top menu of the browser, then mouse-over the “Facebook Chat History Manager” menu option. Click on “Get Facebook ID.” You will need this ID number in order to set the extension to work with your Facebook account. Right-click and copy the ID number in the pop-up box, then click on “OK” to close the box. Click on “Tools” in the Firefox menu bar again, then scroll back down to “Facebook Chat History Manager,” but this time, select “Create Account” from the sub-menu. Paste your Facebook ID in the top field, and then type and re-type your Facebook password in the two password boxes. Click on “Create,” and you will get a pop-up box telling you that your account has been created successfully. Click on “OK.” You can enable this extension to work with multiple accounts on the same browser by repeating these steps, so if you’d like to set this account to be your default user, make sure the “Set as default user” option is checked before clicking “OK.”
View your chat history. Log into Facebook in the Firefox browser, then either press “CTRL+ALT+F,” or click on “Tools” in the menu bar, scroll down to Facebook Chat History Manager and select “View history.” Log into Facebook in the pop-up box, using either your Facebook username or your ID that you copied from the extension during installation. Select the name and chat session from the left-hand column you wish to view. This is also the screen in which you can delete and modify your sessions and accounts by clicking on the appropriate links in the left-hand menu.

What is the etiquette for facebook chat?
So I’m not really a chatting kind of person (over technical means anyway). I don’t text or do facebook chat for little small talk. I utilize those things for making plans on relaying information but that’s about it. So is it rude to not even respond to someone who says “Hi” or something of the sort on FB chat? I usually just completely ignore them if I’ve never talked to them in real life or don’t know them that well. Also how should one go about ending a conversation if it needs to be done abruptly?

the joys of fb chat and txting is that you DONT have to answer them. if you do end up answering, and you have to go just simply say “sorry but i really have to go right now, something has come up (something like that idk)
Suggestion by grenyze
If you enjoy conversing with someone, reply back with a “Hi, how’s it going?”. If you don’t want to talk with them, you’re doing the right thing by ignoring them.
As for ending a conversation, I like to end my conversations since I often don’t realize someone is still chatting if I don’t hear from them for about 5 min. Therefore, whether I’m ending abruptly or not, I’ll end the conversation kind of like a phone conversation, by saying something like “thanks for the chat, talk to you later.” If I have to leave abruptly, I’ll say, “sorry… gotta go. ciao 4 now!” If you’ll be returning to the chat after a phone call, of course, you can say that, like “I got a phone call. BRB”
Anyway, you should feel free to conduct yourself as you would through any medium of conversation. If it’s just not your thing, ask the person to contact you by email or phone if that’s what you prefer.

I always considered it rude not to answer online, yet I’m annoyed by people who want to talk on the phone instead of exchanging information and hanging up.
Different perceptions of reality I guess.

How important is it to you that a business be involved in Social Media (ie: Facebook, Twitter, etc)?
I am considering going to a conference about Social Media and Business and it’s kinda costly so I want to see how important social media is in business and if it will be worth the money to go. Thanks in advance!!
Suggestion by Gavin
Social media is important but that doesn’t mean that you have to attend expensive seminars to get the practical insights. I used to work in this field myself and most conferences ended up being glorified networking meets that could have been arranged online for a fraction of the cost.
Overall, I got more value from attending free webinars online from people in the industry who I contacted through forums, chats and similar references. Only attend conferences if you know that the speakers or participants are from well-known companies and/or have significant, current knowledge of SEO/SEM practices.
