Export Facebook Comments Using Their Built-In Tool

Meta provides a tool to export Facebook comments, and you can do it in the following way:

Step 1: Access the Post: Log in to your Facebook account and locate the post containing the comments you want to download.

Step 2: Utilize Facebook's Built-in Feature: Facebook itself provides a built-in option to download your data, including comments. Go to your settings, select "Your Facebook Information," and then click on "Download Your Information." Choose the date range, post type (in this case, comments), and file format.

Step 3: Save and Extract: After Facebook prepares your data, you'll receive a notification to download the file. Save it to your device and extract the contents to access the comments and download all comments from Facebook posts.
