Download your Profile Information facebook

You can download all your photos, videos, friends, status… from your facebook profile to your computer.


Why facebook has launched this feature?

Perhaps they expect the servers to crash so you can restore the profile information.

Oh wait! There is no restore profile function.

After some research I found an article. David Recordon (Senior Open Programs Manager at Facebook) said that giving the chance to download the profile info means that facebook don’t own the data at all.

At first sight the new feature seems useless.

What do you think?

How to Download it

Go to your Account Settings.

Click on the Learn More link on the right.

Click download. They’ll e-mail you when the files are ready.

    “Oh Wait!”

    Even being able to download all the data you previously uploaded, Facebook is still owning everything.

    Looks like “We give you this feature so you think that bad about us”.

      I downloaded my profile and it’s pretty cool. Is a HTML version of it. You can see your pictures, friend lists and all the status updates (mine since 2009) 😛
