Facebook: Download your entire history!

Try this out:

  1. Log in to your Facebook account.
  2. Click on Account
  3. Click on Account Settings
  4. Click on “Learn More” next to “Download your information”
  5. Click on the “Download” button

You will receive an email with a link to a ZIP file which contains all the information you have put on Facebook: every link, every status update, every picture since you started on Facebook.

I guess this is quite handy. But it is also rather scary how easy it is to create a profile about you in such an easy way.

Warning: You will very likely cringe at some of the stuff you have posted since starting on facebook!

  • Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT
  • Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter
  • Microsoft Windows Vista SP1
