A couple of years back, people started realizing that how Facebook saves each and every piece of data that is created by the users. It even remembers the people you have poked! This somewhat freaked the people out! Some people had requested Facebook to provide them with their Account details and history and upon receiving the records, they found each teeny-weeny detail of their activity. After this, Facebook decided to launch a new feature that allows the users to download all their Account information.
Now you can easily Download your Facebook Profile. Let’s check how…
Downloading Data from Facebook
The coolest feature about Facebook is that it is self explanatory and extremely easy to use. All you need to do is go to your Account Settings. At the bottom of the page, you will see the option of ‘Download a copy of your Facebook Data’.
The process will require you to verify your password. Once it is done, your request for generating the data is acknowledged. It takes a while for Facebook to gather all the information. Once it is done, you get an email notification that now you can download your data. The downloaded zip folder contains all the details of your activities from the day you joined Facebook. It contains the images you have uploaded, the posts you have shared, the comments you have made, the messages you have exchanged and even the likes and pokes! This means that you can get each and every piece of the actions that you have done since the day you joined Facebook till date!
The information is very sensitive and personal so it is important to be very diligent about protecting it.
Facebook takes all the precautionary measures for this downloading process. It asks to confirm and verify the password a number of times during the whole process. The email account is notified about the status of your data. So if seems quite safe unless and until your Facebook Account or Email Account or both are hacked!
To save your account from evil genius hackers, take all the necessary steps as set up by Facebook. You might not like to provide Facebook with your mobile phone number but believe me it is for your own good!
Why Download your Facebook Profile?

Some people, when they grow up, feel that they need to set up a new account because their old one is too messed up due to a lot of fooling around. They might even consider deactivating the old Facebook account. But what to do with all the images and pages that you have liked? You can’t go on and on manually saving those hundreds of precious images. This is the moment when the option of downloading Facebook data comes in handy! Just request Facebook the data and it will take all the hard work to itself!
Some people just feel to move away from Facebook as it could become outrageously addictive at times. But to save the precious photos, you can just download them and get rid of this freaking addiction!

Most people would not be aware of this interesting facility provided by Facebook. And most of us would not even be remembering the pages we like a few days back or the comments we made on somebody’s photo.
