Not a really well known tool, but *may* be handy for some folks…

If you want a copy of essentially everything your ever done, Facebook gives you the ability to download a browseable zip file.

Facebook LogoThis tool lets you download a copy of your information, including your:

  • Photos
  • Videos
  • Posts on your wall
  • All of your messages
  • Your friend list
  • Other content you have shared on your profile.

Be careful!

The info within the file contains your private/sensitive information, so keep it safe and don’t store it or upload it anywhere that’s not secure.
