  • You must migrate the User Profile Service Databases since all your noteboard entries/social comments are stored in the UserProfile Social Database. Refer post to learn more.

    You could also try to use the API to query the user profile service and export the required values and then re-import them into destination farm. SharePoint has an API, and you would want to look at the GetComments method. A deeper study with Powershell is also possible. Follow article 1 and 2 for more info.
