A lot of people have complained of facebook being a one side data channel with users uploading information with no easy means of gathering all this information. Now facebook has added a feature whereby it provides a download button that will help move all your data out of facebook as a zip file.

This feature has been incorporated owing to numerous users demanding a download feature. Using this download button would help you download all your photos, messages, videos, posts on your wall and everything you uploaded on facebook.

Go to Account Settings.

Click on Download Your Information link

The following video shows you how to complete the simple process.

However, some of the things will not be included in your zip file  :

  • Your photos uploaded by others
  • Facebook Phonebook
  • Email Addresses of your friends.

But there are ways around to download all this data too.
